We were lucky today that the wet morning turned into a lovely sunny afternoon, enabling the Figgate Park to be enjoyed at its best.  The live music by the Caleerie Buskers made for a lovely atmosphere, and this event to celebrate the life of Tom Ryan was well supported by both regular orienteers and their families and by local residents who live near the Park.    Several children took the big leap forward into doing a course by themselves for the first time.  Bigger people over 16 were more challenged in the surrounding streets.  Everyone you meet is always very welcoming at the Figgate Park, which encourages us to hold more events here.
