Important information about parking:
“Like most clubs who hold an xc event we couldn’t go ahead without the support of the local community and as most clubs can testify parking can be a real issue.

With this in mind, we at Saltwell, would be grateful if you could use the free parking facilities at the moss heaps nhs park and ride area.

Cardinal Hume school car park will only be used as an overflow and only when the moss heaps car park is full.

We would also like to remind people not to park on the grass opposite cardinal Hume school or down moss side road.

We have previously had complaints by residents and the local community of inconsiderate parking. I appreciate this is limited to a few people but unfortunately the few spoil it for the many.”
