CITO ("Cache In, Trash Out") events are a chance for Geocachers to make a positive contribution to the effort of keeping our world beautiful, safe and as they should be. We often make use of this rich landscape as we hide and seek our caches but this gives us a chance to do more. Today's event is mostly about litter-picking.
Please bring the following with you:
- Suitable footwear and clothing (the ground here is uneven)
- A drink or snack if you want one!
- A litter picker, if you can.
- Suitable footwear and thick trousers as there may be low branches / some nettles.
I will provide:
- Bin liners
- Antibacterial hand gel
Nocton Park is a private estate, and has many areas for recreation. Come along prepared to spend a while clearing the area and removing the litter. This is mostly in the form of cans, wrappers, crisp packets etc it's important to be careful and vigilant when picking up litter. If you see anything that you're not sure of then don't touch it! Call someone else over and we can decide together what to do about it. No sharps are expected but please remain vigilant.
Children are welcome to take part but should be supervised by a responsible adult at all times as there is a small stream behind the woodlands. Dogs are welcome too but should be kept on a lead. (Dogs can also take part by encouraging their owners to take away any poop they leave! there is a bin provided by the gate) Everyone takes part at their own risk, although accidents and incidents are unlikely if we're careful and sensible. Note; You participate at your own risk, and The land owner, Organisers and Geocaching can not be held liable for loss, injury or worse, so please just be sensible. The land owner has public liability insurance.
Please note: there is parking available on the grass area at the given coordinates. If it has rained, someone will direct you to a tarmac/gravelled area a few hundred feet away and you can regroup at the coords. Please car-share where possible.
Disabled ? We are mindful that many Cito events are difficult due to terrain. If you can negotiate mowed grass, this one is for you! We can offer easier areas to fit in with your abilities.
