Over 40 pupils and staff from Newburgh Primary School visited a new Orienteering Course at Jubilee Wood in Warwick on Monday 3rd February.

The event was organised by the Sky Blues in the Community team, as part of the Warwick District Council-funded Impact project – which provides free sport and arts activities for residents of the Forbes Estate area of Warwick.

Councillor Stephen Cross, Cllr Richard Davies and Cllr Elizabeth Higgins welcomed the school to the venue before Karin Kirk from Octavian Droobers, the local orienteering club, introduced the sport to the pupils and showed them how to navigate their way around the course.

Pupils set off in small groups and worked their way around the various course routes and were joined and assisted by Sky Blues stars Andy Webster and Aaron Phillips.

Jubilee Wood Orienteering Course has been developed by Warwick District Council Cultural Services with support from Octavian Droobers Orienteering Club and Warwick Town Council. 

The Course is available for school use from October to end of February each year. Course bookings are managed by Warwick Town Council who can be contacted on 01926 411694 or wtc.admin@btclick.com.

For more information on the Impact project and the activities available please contact the Sky Blues in the Community office on 024 7678 6349, or email the Impact Project Coordinator Kimberley Dougherty on kim.dougherty@ccfc.co.uk.
