One Week Left For Our Raffle

Geocaching Premium Membership

Don’t forget to enter our raffle, in which we’re putting 10 Premium Memberships up for grabs. These are valid for 12 months on Geocaching.com, and can still be used even if you’re only partway through a yearly subscription as it’ll extend your membership by a further year once applied.

Tickets are available on our online store for £2 each, from the following link: https://londoncallingnow.co.uk/product/premium-membership-raffle-ticket/

The closing date for the raffle is next Sunday, the 19th December 2021 at 11:59 pm. The draw will be made the following day with a recording posted on our Facebook Page here: https://www.facebook.com/LondonCalling2021

All proceeds go towards the funds for the next London Mega, which we’ll hopefully be able to update you all on soon. Planning has been underway for a while now and we’re getting closer to an announcement. So any funds help us out immensely and you might get something back for it if you’re lucky enough.

A big thank you to our sponsors, Groundspeak, for providing us these Premium Memberships to give away.

New Website Finally Complete

We’re pleased to say the transition to the new hosting and website design is finally finished, and this now stands us in good stead for our future events. Thank you to all of you for your patience. While the majority of the site is basically the old site but under a new design, we are intended to expand the site over time based on what you would like to see.

We have already added a new events page here, which shows a calendar of all the events coming up within London. If you click on any of the listings on that calendar and then click on “More information” it’ll take you straight to the Geocaching.com listing for that event. The colour code is red for other events/community celebrations, green for other Cache in Trash Out (CiTO) events, and all London Calling related events will be in yellow.

Also, if you scroll to the bottom of any page, you’ll see a list of the next few geocaching events coming up in London. If you click on the name of the event there, it’ll take you straight to the event listing on Geocaching.com.

If you spot that we’ve missed an upcoming event, let us know by sending us a message using the Contact Us form here. Or just let us know about any new features you’d like to see on our site.

New Website On the Way

We’re just in the midst of organising the new website, so you might see a few changes over the course of the next few days/week. We’ve taken on board some of the feedback, especially with regards to the integration in relation to the online store and we hope that the new arrangements will work a lot better than the store we used for LC21.

One of the additional features is that we’re looking to host an ongoing calendar of geocaching events in London. This can be seen on our events page here.

As always, please send us any feedback you may have via the contact form.

London Calling 2021

Less Than A Month To Go!

The London Calling committee has been hard at work behind the scenes, bringing together London’s first-ever Mega event. We were at Piratemania last weekend, we’ll be at the Official UK Mega in Lincoln next weekend and then we’ll be going full steam ahead into London Calling 2021. 

Two of the three side events have already been published, with the third coming in the next few days. On Friday 27th August, you’ll find us at St Martin in the Fields (just off Trafalgar Square) between 6 pm and 8 pm for “To The Underworld” (https://coord.info/GC9EBPC). On Sunday morning, look out for Wombles during our CiTO on Wimbledon Common for “A Wombles Work Is Never Done” (https://coord.info/GC9BW1D).
