Volunteers who give up their time to make the Peak District National Park a better place are being sought for a national award.

The Association of National Park Authorities wants to recognise the unsung heroes who work in different ways to make the national park a special place.

The Volunteer Awards will be judged by BBC Countryfile TV presenters Julia Bradbury and Helen Skelton.

Every year more than 7,000 volunteer days of work are done in the Peak District National Park by volunteers working with the national park authority through groups like its volunteer rangers and the Peak Park Conservation Volunteers.

Jim Dixon, chief executive of the Peak District National Park Authority, said: “We are lucky to have thousands of dedicated volunteers who work in all weathers making the national park a better place.

“The volunteers do this because they are so passionate about looking after this special place.”
