For some Southdowners, August Bank Holiday weekend means travelling to the North York Moors for the annual White Rose weekend of Orienteering. The event is a great social occasion and is always based around a central event campsite with most events only walking distance away. The prestigious prize that everyone pursues is the White Rose Mug!
