A new cartoon is helping youngsters understand how to behave in the Peah District to be safe and enjoy their visit.

The film was commissioned by the Peak District National Park Authority to help educate visitors aged between 11 and 25.

The humorous animation encourages young people to enjoy the Peak District, but warns of some of the dangers, such as lighting fires and dropping litter.

Carol Parsons, park recreation strategy officer, said: “The park protects the Peak District’s landscape, but it is also our job to help people of all ages to understand and enjoy its special qualities and discover all there is to do.

“We hope this fun, quirky film will encourage young visitors to learn more about the Park before they come, and help us look after it when they are here.”

The film will be shown at events including the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival, which takes place at The Showroom in the city centre in March.
