The English Outdoor Council, the Campaign for Adventure and the BBC are jointly promoting this year’s Outdoor Adventure Week which will run from 2 to 11 April. The BBC is running a 10 week television series about outdoor adventure and has listed activities that are open to the public on its website
The East Riding of Yorkshire Council has invited clubs to take part in this year’s initiative by offering free or discounted activities in order to promote themselves and raise awareness of the adventure activities that are on offer in the area. In the 2009 Week activities offered in the East Riding included archery, canoeing, climbing, cycling, fishing, golf, sailing, shooting and windsurfing.
HALO has agreed to include orienteering in this year’s activities. We are organising the final event of the East Yorkshire Short Race Series at Londesborough Park on Saturday, 10 April and will put on a beginners course in addition. We will also draw attention to the permanent orienteering courses at Humber Bridge Country Park and Sewerby Park where members of the public can try orienteering at any time during opening hours
