Pupils of the Peaks

A NEW award has been launched that aims to motivate people of all ages to study the Peak District.

The award is being launched on Sunday July 29 to celebrate the start of National Parks Week.

To gain the Peak District Award candidates must complete an application to say what topic they will study and must then keep a record of what they do.

Candidates must also spend time learning about their chosen subject and must make at least one visit to the Peak District National Park.

Sarah Wilks, the award coordinator, said: “There is no age limit, we are looking for individuals, families or groups to sign up and have fun finding out about the Peak District.”
