Matlock Community Orienteering club leads the way

Receiving the Award

In less than a year since the Matlock Community Orienteering Club started meeting at The Arc Leisure Centre, the Club picked up its first award. The Club came joint first in the “Community Sports Project of the Year” category, awarded as part of the Derbyshire Dales Sports Awards of the year for 2012.

The award recognised the Club’s significant contribution for sport and recreation and, in particular: the great location at The Arc; the regular participation of parents with their children; the variety of formats used, including climbing wall and bike orienteering; local orienteers giving their time to help; first national orienteering apprentice coach; a volunteer taking part as part of Duke of Edinburgh scheme; a junior completing their Brownie badge; teaching orienteering training for staff supporting disabled people; taster sessions at local primary schools and cross country events and success in the Derbyshire Schools Championships.

If you would like to come along to the Club, we meet at The Arc on Wednesdays during term time, from 6.30pm – 8pm. Adults £2; juniors 50p. Further details, please contact Viv on 01629 734307 or Judith on 01629 582325.
