17 Sept (Wed)  Blandford Camp  Results

29 Sept  Gore Heath Dorset Schools League & Informal  Flyer  NB This event replaces the SWOA Galoppen originally scheduled for this date. Storm damage over last winter followed by recent & continuing forestry harvesting operations sadly mean that the area of forest on Gore Heath currently available for orienteering is not large enough to support a major event. The WIM Galoppen has been rescheduled to Sunday 11th Jan 2015.

Child protection

At the September 2004 WIM Committee meeting, it was recorded in the minutes that the club had adopted the BOF Child Protection Policy. Wimborne Orienteers is intent that children and vulnerable adults will find orienteering a safe environment in which to have fun, learn and develop. The Club will do this by adopting and promoting the British Orienteering Federation Policy on Protecting Young and Vulnerable People.
