As a way of thanking members of our Supporters Group, we have arranged navigation training sessions for them. The latest took place yesterday with North Wales outdoor activity company Original Outdoors, and from the Twitter feedback, it seems a good time was had by all:
Supporters Daz and Shan were taken through bearings, pacing and a few navigational techniques near Ruthin by outdoor instructor Richard, who also happens to be one of our Deputy Team Leaders!
