Help needed to lay a Lincolnshire Wolds treasure trail

GEOCACHE gatherers and willing walkers are invited to geocache training sessions and to sign up to help lay a Lincolnshire Wolds Summer of Geocaching treasure trail.

The community heritage project Down Your Wold is appealing for volunteers to help lay heritage related geocaches at various locations throughout the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Geocaching is known as a modern day treasure hunt where participants use their smart phone’s GPS system to navigate through clues to find a hidden container.

Down Your Wold project officer, Sam Phillips, explains: “The training sessions are open to people who would like to lay a geocache in their village or favourite Wolds walk. It is hoped that the hidden treasure will encourage people to enjoy the countryside, explore our wonderful Wolds villages and learn more about the fascinating heritage of our local landscape.”

Anyone wanting to be involved or interested to learn more is invited to attend one of four training sessions planned this April. The two hour training session will be provided by Mike Eckersley, Chairman of Market Rasen Walkers are Welcome. The session will include an introduction for beginners followed by an opportunity for volunteers to sign up to a location and become part of this exciting initiative.

The training sessions will take place on the following dates; volunteers only need to attend one session:

Wednesday April 9th

Afternoon session in Walesby Village Hall at 1:30pm

Evening session in Nettleton Village Hall at 6.30pm

Friday April 25th

Afternoon session in the Orchard Gallery at Gunby Hall and Gardens at 1:30pm

Evening Session in Hemingby Village Hall at 6.30pm

Parking is available at all venues and refreshments will be provided.
