Call for Lake District volunteers

Lovers of the Lake District are being sought to help visitors make the most of their time in the area.

With the height of the holiday season fast approaching, the Lake District National Park is seeking a team of dedicated enthusiasts to meet and greet Windermere Lake Cruises’ passengers at Bowness and Ambleside piers.

Volunteers will be asked to hand out leaflets, talk to people about the national park and encourage them to drop off at the Lake District Visitor Centre at Brockhole.

“This is a brilliant opportunity for people to play a part in promoting opportunities to enjoy a spectacular place. Our drive to encourage visitors to park up and get round the world renowned locations by boat, bus, train, bike or boots make it a very appealing initiative.

“We want as many people as possible to enjoy the huge amount Brockhole offers, without adding to pressure on the roads. This way, holidaymakers can enjoy a beautiful boat trip, as well as a veritable feast of activities.”

– Lorraine Brierley, Lake District National Park’s commercial assistant
