Stephen Borrill nominated for Development & Innovation Award

Our new club chair, Stephen Borrill, was recently nominated for British Orienteering's Development & Innovation Award for 2022, for creating the website. This is the first time this award has been, ermm, awarded, and so there was strong competition, not least from Peter Effeney, based in Australia, who invented the MapRun app. Although Stephen did not receive the award this time, we are proud to see his work recognised.

You can see a profile of Stephen and the other nominees, on the British Orienteering website here.
