Fells project seeks volunteers off the hill

Those who like to go walking in the Lake District may be the beneficiaries of the recruitment of more volunteers by the path-mending Fix the Fells scheme.

But these will not be extra people on the mountains repairing damaged tracks, as the body is looking for office helpers to assist with raising funds and awareness for the project.

Co-ordinator of the project Jim Duckman stated: "We're looking for people who are enthusiastic and passionate about the Lake District and who can offer a regular commitment of a day a week."

As well as a love of the hills, the six people it needs have to be good with IT and good communicators, it stated.

By boosting the cash levels coming in, the fundraisers may do much to bolster efforts to keep footpaths in good shape.

Fix the Fells may also be in line for a cash windfall from the European Outdoor Conservation Association for its plans to repair paths on Striding Edge and Scafell Pike.

It is one of four bids subjected to a public vote that closed this week, with the winner due to be announced in July.
