Van to take Dartmoor to Devon's towns
Bookmark and Share
The Dartmoor National Park has set up a mobile stand that can inform people living in Devon's towns and cities about the area and its recreational facilities.

Called Dartmoor To You, the outreach vehicle will encourage people to put on hiking boots and go walking in the national park, outlining the health benefits of this.

Starting at Widecombe Fair on September 14th, it will take its message around the county to places such as Exeter, Torbay, Totnes, Newton Abbot and Plymouth.

Councillor Christine Marsh, the county authorities appointed representative on the Dartmoor National Park Authority, said the project creates chances "to take information to audiences that may not have previously visited the National Park and help tackle some of the barriers that prevent people visiting this wonderful local resource".

Other recent initiatives included an adventure day for 18 youngsters from Plymouth at Burrator Reservoir run by the national park authority on August 31st, in which the participants learned skills ranging from bushcraft to reading Ordnance Survey maps.
