Happy Herts will be hosting an Event Safety Workshop on the afternoon of Saturday 26th November in St Albans.
The Event Safety Workshop is due to become a requirement for Event Officials but even if you are not planning to volunteer to be a planner or organiser of an event the workshop is a great way to understand the risks inherent in the sport.
Its also a great way to meet fellow orienteers and share knowledge and experience.
