8th December 2021: Anne Braggins RIP

We are all sad to hear that Anne passed away on 27th November. Outside our region, Anne is mostly known for championing TrailO. It is down to Anne that TrailO is established as a recognised discipline within the sport of orienteering both nationally and internationally. In addition to this Anne helped create the East Anglian Regional Association and was chair of the region in the 1980's. Anne coordinated the 1986 JK held in our region, at Thetford Warren. She went on to become chair of the British Orienteering Federation between 1989 and 1992. A wealth of detail on Anne's achievements can be found in the obituary recently published on the BO website.

Although not an active competitor, Anne continued to be a presence in the sport, remaining a member of WAOC, representing TrailO on the EAOA committee, and organising TrailO events as part of the JK and more locally at WAOC events.

She continued to act as an on the day helper at our higher profile events until recently. Our best wishes go to her friends and family.
