NATIONAL PARK NEWS OUT NOW FOR RESIDENTS & VISITORS
PeakDistrict 2004, the free newspaper and guide to the National Park, is now available from Information Centres and libraries.
Produced for residents and visitors by the Peak District National Park Authority, PeakDistrict 2004 celebrates the Ranger Service's 50th Anniversary, features the £4.7 million 'Moors for the Future' project to protect remote countryside and rare wildlife, and looks at how the Authority is helping local communities sustain the rural economy.
Tony Hams, Chair of the National Park Authority, said: "The free newspaper is packed with stories of how people from all walks of life and all sectors of society are becoming actively involved in the life of the National Park, whether they are looking after it, or making it more accessible for everyone to enjoy, or developing businesses in ways that don't cause damage.
"There're articles on wildlife conservation and how farmers and landowners are restoring habitats and species through the Vision Project, as well as news of how people from town and country are coming together to help keep the Park a special place and enjoy all it has to offer."
Complete with lists of guided walks with the Rangers, places to visit and things to do, PeakDistrict 2004 is an essential guide to what's happening in the National Park.
All households within the National Park have been sent a copy of PeakDistrict 2004.
