Lake District National Park rangers have asked young people if there is enough for them to do in Cumbria. The answer was largely no.
The result is many cannot see any other option than moving away for work or training which could leave a brain drain in the county as young people choose to head south instead.
The National Park has started to address their concerns by getting a group of just over 20 together for a fun day, while hearing what the main barriers are for them enjoying life in South Cumbria and staying here when they are older.
