Geocaching- Bringing the adventure outdoors!
What is Geocaching?
Geocaching is an outdoor adventure where players use the Geocaching free mobile app or a GPS device to find cleverly hidden containers around the world. 3 million people worldwide are currently part of the Geocaching network, and its growing fast! With more than 830,000 active users in the U.S., more than 375,000 in Germany and more than 160,000 in the United Kingdom.
Why do people Geocache?
People geocache because it’s a way to explore the world around them with friends and family and because it’s fun. Geocaching is a game that reveals a world beyond the everyday, where the possibility of a new discovery hides under park benches, in the forest and probably a short walk from where you are right now. Whether you’re looking ways to get the kids out the house, or you simply fancy an adventure, Geocaching is the way forward.
More than 2.8 million geocaches are waiting to be found in over 180 countries. Start your Geocaching journey today!

Romiley Methodist Modellers are hosting their annual event at Romiley Methodist Church.
This event is aimed at families. Admission is by donation. Proceeds will go to Action for Children. As well as the normal ‘don’t touch’ scenic layouts, there will be several hands-on / drive-it-yourself layouts for the young-at-heart of all ages, and a ‘Can-You-Spot?’ challenge. Kindly leave the on-site car park for those with limited mobility. Romiley Station and bus stops are only four hundred meters from the Church.
