Walkers may be boosted by strategic Lakes plan

People who like to go walking in the Lake District could get a boost from a new plan aimed at maximising the efforts of volunteers in the national park.

The Lake District National Park Authority decided to instigate the plan as a way of ensuring the Localism Bill and the Big Society project help counterbalance the reduction in government funding.

Better standards, improved communication and the "integration" of volunteers into the delivery of services are all among the plans.

Chief executive of the authority Richard Leafe said: "Members were keen to express their support for the work the volunteers do, helping to supplement the activities of our permanent professional staff."

Walkers enjoying guided walks organised by park authority rangers may be taking part in one tomorrow (April 28th), covering a stretch of the Dales Way between Staveley and Windermere village.

Good walking boots may be needed as the guide to the trek states that "appropriate" footwear will be needed.
