Ash Dieback Disease (Chalara fraxinea) and other Invasive Non-Native Species (INNS)
Advice from British Orienteering is here.
A summary for those attending events -
The Food and Environment Research Agency and the Animal and Plant Health Agency advice can be summarised as:
We should all be checking our clothing and equipment before leaving the car park to ensure that there is no visible plant material either on our shoes or our clothing. If there is any plant material it should be removed and left on site. We should also knock off any soil or leaf litter.
Once home thoroughly clean your footwear and clothing and then leave it to dry for as long as possible. Many of the INNS are able to survive in damp corners for very long periods of time, but are less able to survive if the equipment is thoroughly dried.
|18 Jan||The EA Championships are on Sunday 19th March at Rushmere (SMOC event). Please can all 2016 champions ensure that their trophies are engraved and either brought along on 19th March or given to someone who will be going (it is particularly disappointing for the junior winners if there is no trophy for them on the day). If you are aware of any champions who have left the Club or Region it would be very helpful if you could let me know. The prize giving will be held as early as possible on the day (weather permitting!). Thanks, Barbara, EAOA Secretary.|
