Anglesey primary school children recently enjoyed two days of orienteering activities organised by the Môn Actif team.

Held at the Carreglwyd Estate in Llanfaethlu, the orienteering festival was an incredible success with hundreds of children given the opportunity to develop their navigational skills whilst working as part of a team.

Anglesey’s Community Sport Development Officer Barry Edwards, said,
