A plan to repair footpaths at two of the most popular places in the Lake District needs the public's votes to gain much needed cash, it has been revealed, something those who like to go walking
there may be interested in.
The European Outdoor Conservation Association is to hold an online vote to decide which of four proposals in Britain will get €30,000 (£25,780) of funding, an email newsletter from Nurture Lakeland has revealed.
Voting starts on March 9th and the Lake District plan to improve paths on Striding Edge and Scafell Pike is proposed by footpath repair charity Fix the Fells.
Rival bids involve potential projects in Snowdonia and the Yorkshire Dales.
The Welsh contender is the Snowdonia Society's Conservation Snowdonia Project, which also involves footpath maintenance work.
One example of this is an upcoming day of work on the Pyg Track on Snowdon, which takes place on March 21st.
