In a bid to get the Lake District a world heritage status, organisers have provided children across Cumbria with writing tools, encouraging them to share their stories of growing up in the region.
The Lake District National Park’s learning co-ordinator, Ruth Suddaby, said the exercise was about getting a valuable perceptive on children’s thoughts and ideas. It aims to encourage them to get involved in the exciting World Heritage campaign.
A National Park ranger and mother, Suzy Hankin, whose children go to St Herbert’s in Keswick, said the initiative encouraged children's thoughts to be inventive.
The World Heritage pack for schools is still available with the closing date for entries being on Friday, 16 June.
