It’s not Orkney, but it is Scotland, and it is wonder–full!
I know it may seem like we are actually going back in time but the clocks go forward by 1 hour tomorrow.
Encamped at Naujaat the team led by David Reid is hoping to start off on their intrepid adventure today, Saturday 30th of March.
It is on from 1.30pm – 4pm and is suitable for all.
“The idea of the Arcadia Park Project, is to landscape an area near to the new hospital”
“In March 2019, the Arctic Return Expedition team will return to Naujaat and embark upon on a 650-kilometre trek across Boothia Peninsula that will follow the route taken by Rae and his indigenous companions.”
High spring tides, accompanied by a surge and large waves, give a risk of coastal flooding during Friday, 22nd March.
“The theme of this weekend, entitled – ‘The Progress So Far’ – ties in nicely with the fact that John Rae’s route is to be re-traced by an expedition setting off next month – April 2019”
The next session is on Tuesday 26th March at 7.30pm at the Lifestyles Area at the Pickaquoy Centre, Kirkwall.
Orkney’s social work service will be celebrated at World Social Work Day events in the St Magnus Centre, Kirkwall. The events are open to the public.
