As part of a fund raising drive to improve school facilities, Yate’s
North Road Community Primary is hosting a prize-filled family orienteering day
The event, on Sunday, July 5, is open to local residents of all ages and is designed to test the navigational skills of participants in a fun and friendly challenge which starts and ends at the school, from 2pm onwards.
Prizes for the top five finishers include a family day out at Old Down Country Park, a family meal for four at The Codrington Arms, four admission tickets to Cattle Country, meal vouchers for The Fox and two children’s tickets for Slimbridge WWT – plus a memento for everyone who takes part.  Sponsor Edison Ford is donating 10% of all sales and lettings commission linked to North Road School and the orienteering event to the school.
Last year’s inaugural event saw 100 people plot their way around a specially-designed circular route and raise money for the school.  Head teacher Mrs Williams said: “Last year’s event was so much fun that we are planning a bigger and better event this year.  Mrs Tricky has already plotted the route, which is currently under lock and key.”
Entry is £7 per family of four on the day, or £5 in advance if you register via North Road Primary School website http://www.northroadprimaryschool.co.uk/. Under 4’s go free (not included in family of four), but the route is not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs.
