Mapping the way to mountain rescue

Outdoor enthusiasts are being invited to learn how to explore the countryside safely while supporting the mountain rescue service.

Russell Tait, senior ranger for Northumberland National Park, is leading the map and compass course at Rothbury next month.

The event, on Saturday, March 3, is to raise money for Northumberland National Park Mountain Rescue Team.

Russell, a member of the team will lead people through maps, scales, grid references and how they work before moving onto some basic compass work, including how to create and follow bearings.

Maps and compasses will be provided. The course costs £39.00 per person and is from 10am to 4 pm. Half the money raised will go to the rescue team, a voluntary organisation which provides the life saving service all year around.
