Two new maps were launched this week as part of the Welwyn Garden City Centenary Foundation’s Sport for All project.
The new WGC Orienteering Photo Trail, created by Hertfordshire Orienteering Club, offers an introduction to people who have never tried the sport before as well as a Running Time Challenge for those with more experience.
The new activity map is a significant update on the original version produced in 2005. It now covers all the main cycle paths, bridleways and many key footpaths in and around the town.
Having cancelled all but two of nearly 100 planned sports events in 2020, Sports for All leaders John Beech and Eric Walsby have expressed their delight in helping WelHat Cycling and Herts Orienteering Club "to produce two superb maps”.
Both maps can be picked up in various outlets across the town including the Library, Waterstones and Oxfam Book Shop.
