This cache is temporarily unavailable.

Professor Xavier: Hi

One of my roles as a reviewer is to monitor my region for caches that have been disabled for a long time, have had a reasonable number of DNFs or appear to require some maintenance. This is done through running a query on a database of all the caches in my region that looks for such things or by cachers submitting Needs Archiving logs as it appears maintenance may not be being carried out by the CO.

It would appear that this cache may benefit from some attention by the CO. May I ask that the owner checks the cache and sort out any problems with it or gives an indication of when it may be up and running again for people to find. If this cannot be done or if the CO no longer wishes to maintain the cache then the listing should be archived.

Of course if the CO has visited the cache recently then please post an Owner Maintenance log indicating that they have done so, enable the listing, and all should be fine.

In the future, if a listing is going to be disabled for a long time then posting periodic notes to the page (once per month or so) keeps people up to date with what is happening.

This isn't a requirement to fix the cache immediately but if it's unlikely to be done within 30 days could the CO post a note to the cache page giving an indication of when the maintenance will be done, or an indication of why it cannot be carried out.

By all means send a mail to me through my profile, quoting the cache name and GC code, but please also post a note to the cache page. Emails to me may be missed or go astray and it would be a shame to archive the listing due to missing correspondence.

Guidelines: "You are responsible for occasional visits to your cache to maintain proper working order, especially when someone reports a problem with the cache (missing, damaged, wet, etc.). You may temporarily disable your cache to let others know not to search for it until you have a chance to fix the problem. This feature is to allow you a reasonable amount of time - normally a few weeks - in which to check on your cache. If a cache is not being maintained, or has been temporarily disabled for an unreasonable length of time, we may archive the listing."

Sadly if there is no response to this log after 30 days I may have to archive the cache.

Please note that the guidelines say that if a cache is archived by a reviewer or Geocaching HQ staff for lack of maintenance then it will not be unarchived - Unarchiving a Geocache

Geocache Description:

4th in a series of 4 caches to commemorate the Queens Diamond Jubilee. Situated within the Borough of Broxtowe, all 4 caches are located on designated Queen Elizabeth II Fields.

Hall Om Wong, Kimberley

This open space on the edge of Kimberley derives its unusual name from old English. It can be summarised as “Mr Hall’s home piece of land”. References date back to the 1700’s. The site is approximately 3 hectares in size and is designated as a Local Nature Reserve with a series of important areas of woodland around its edges. It also has a wildflower meadow and a small area of wetland.

In terms of leisure activity the extensive children’s play area and small concrete skate park are extremely popular. There is also a multi-use games area near the main entrance and a trim trail that provides opportunities for outdoor exercise around the perimeter of the site. There is no car parking on the site but there are a series of pedestrian entrance points with the main access form Eastwood Road. A main path runs through the centre of the site up a steep bank which is popular in the winter for sledging.

The cache is full of goodies:-
FTF badge
Stash card
2 toy badgers
2 reflective arm bands
various cup coasters
Pen and wheelie bin pencil sharpener (to take)
Various coins including 1 Roman coin
Erewash valley trail stickers
Toy car
Key rings
colouring book
