Free maps for Year 7

7th October 2005 at 01:00
Ray Mears says: "Giving youngsters a map of their own gives them the opportunity to do what I did - get out there and explore while learning vital navigation skills." He is supporting an Ordnance Survey initiative to provide free maps of their local area for every 11-year-old in the UK. In its fourth year, scheme has already given out more than two million maps. This year, to encourage pupils to use them, there is a competition. The winner will spend a day with Ray Mears learning about bushcraft and how to get the most out of their OS map. Help your Year 7 pupils "find their way" by applying for their own OS Explorer map. Tessa Bartley
