users in the Lake District may wish to be among those contributing to planning on the future of an area of wetland at the northern end of Bassenthwaite Lake.
Local charity Bassenthwaite Reflections ceases to function in December and it is passing control of the habitat over to those keen to help run it in the future, which may interest those using the lake and the area for fishing.
Known as Friends of Dubwath Silver Meadows, the new body will hold its first public meeting at Bassenthwaite Sailing Club on November 15th, the national park authority has revealed.
Karin Crofts of Reflections said she believed volunteers already involved with the 17-acre site can do much to preserve the legacy of the recent work carried out there.
She said: "They have already achieved so much and are well aware that only by their continued hard work and dedication will this very special place be preserved for posterity."
Bassenthwaite Lake is often referred to as the "only Lake in the Lake District", as the rest have the suffixes Mere or Water.
