Peak District grant to boost Dane Valley

Thousands of pounds are to go towards efforts to preserve and enhance the Dane Valley.

The Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded the Peak District National Park Authority a £65,000 grant, which will fund a variety of conservation projects and surveys.

Members of the public are being invited to participate in the initiative, which should help ensure the Dane Valley continues attracting people who like to go walking with their rucksacks for many years to come.

Rebekah Newman, an ecologist in the region, commented: "We have a fantastic opportunity to enhance these important woodlands, together with local people."

Both adults and children are being asked to support the programme, while birdwatchers, historians and naturalists in the area are particularly sought after.

The Peak District was recently hailed as one of the most popular holiday destinations in the UK in the Countryfile Magazine Awards, partly because it is a "treasured open landscape within striking distance of major cities".ADNFCR-2803-ID-801377008-ADNFCR
