“I was given the award by the ‘League of Extraordinary Cachers’ at their end of year event in Merstham, Surrey, on Sunday, December 11.

“I was very pleased to win the award.

“I really enjoy geocaching, and have my own geocaching channel on YouTube which gets hundreds of hits, and has more than 70 subscribers.”
