A team of community champions whose aim is to encourage more young people to visit national parks has met up in Devon, the Dartmoor National Park reports.

The group, from the Mosaic project, were meeting at the X Centre in Exeter to celebrate their efforts to encourage more 18 to 25-year-olds to enjoy the Dartmoor and Exmoor national parks.

Mosaic promoted 18 people from towns and cities around the county, such as Plymouth, Exeter, Bideford and Barnstaple, with the task of encouraging young people to enjoy the scenery close to them.

The work of the champions has been praised by Council of National Parks chairman Ben Fogle.

He said: "It’s not a good idea, it’s a brilliant idea. For many 'young champions', Mosaic has given them a sense of belonging. I feel humbled and proud to have met them."

Those wishing to discover the charms of their own local countryside may wish to invest in men's outdoor clothing or women's outdoor clothing.

Dartmoor was designated a national park in 1951, while Exmoor gained such status in 1954.
