With the extension of the Yorkshire Dales National Park further into Cumbria, there is a chance for people to contribute to their management plan consultation. So go to their website, complete one of their questionnaires or go along to one of the drop-in sessions at Orton on 13 June and Barbon on 20 June

The Westmorland Dales Hidden Landscapes Partnership scheme, grant funded by Heritage Lottery, lies within the north-western part of the extension area and will be looking to complement what the National Park Authority and other partners are doing. 

I'll be attending the session in Orton together with Nicola Estill our community engagement officer. If you'd like to meet us, get a better idea of what the scheme is hoping to achieve, and how you might get involved do call in.  We'd love to meet you.
