The popular Malvern Hills Letterboxing challenge is returning to the district to encourage children and families to enjoy the outdoors from 22nd July 2019.
Letterboxing is an orienteering challenge where participants use a notebook with clues and a free map to find 25 rubber stamps hidden in letterboxes across the hills.
Created by Malvern Hills District Council in partnership with Malvern Hills Trust, the challenge will start from 22 July and will be available throughout the summer holidays.
This year, the hills have been divided into weekly areas which will have three to five letterboxes out at once and will stay out for a week.
Clue sheets, notebooks and badges can be purchased for £3 from Malvern Tourist Information Centre (TIC) along with a free map.
Free updated versions of the packs will be issued for families that have purchased them in previous years. Simply take the existing pack to the TIC in its new location.
