A group of community champions will be jumping on mountain bikes
and donning riding hats as they enjoy the wonders of Dartmoor and celebrate their role in encouraging ethnic minority groups to visit national parks.
Run by the Campaign for National Parks (CNP), the Mosaic project has recruited the champions from towns and cities all over the country to spread the message and those in the south-west region will gather at Okehampton tomorrow (March 4th) for a celebration weekend.
There will be activities including mountain biking and horse riding, while the respective chairmen of Dartmoor and Exmoor National Park Authorities, Bill Hitchins and John Dyke, will be there for a prize-giving ceremony.
Okehampton lies on the northern edge of the Dartmoor National Park and from there it is possible to climb High Willhays, at 2,039 ft the highest point in southern England.
The summit offers a panoramic view over the flatter countryside to the north of Okehampton.
