Anglers and other interested parties have been reminded that they still have a chance to join a steering group that will guide the future of England's largest lake.
There are four places still up for grabs on the 11-strong Windermere Lake User Forum, which represents those who fish or use boats on the body of water, the Lake District National Park Authority has stated.
Interested parties can fill in an application form to join the group, which as well as advising the park authority on the use of the lake can also influence the decisions of South Lakeland District Council.
The national park's catchment projects co-ordinator Suzy Grindley said: "Each member represents all lake users in their relevant group, rather than any particular club or organisation," adding that it offered a "great opportunity" to have a say in how the lake is run.
Anglers joining the body could help promote policies that benefit those who like to take their fishing equipment
down to the lake.
Changes to how the lake operates in recent years include the controversial introduction of a 10 mph speed limit in 2005.
