Mobile display spreads the countryside message across Yorkshire Dales

[Thursday 27 July 2006]

THE finishing touches have recently been put to a brand new trailer which is all set to display the work of North Yorkshire's Countryside Service at showgrounds across the Yorkshire Dales.

Run by the County Council, the trailer will be used at agricultural shows across North Yorkshire to explain the work that the Authority does on conservation and access to the countryside.

It will be next on display at the Stokesley Show on September 23, and the Nidderdale Show on September 25.

Officers and volunteers from the service will be staffing the stand to help answer questions from the public and believe it will provide a good opportunity for residents and visitors alike to find out more about a wide range of countryside issues.

Staff from the service carry out a wide range of duties including maintaining footpaths and rights of way and carrying out visitor surveys.

How can you make best use of your local rights of way network - what can you do to help protect wildlife - where can you find out more about local archaeology, are just some of the topics on which information will be available.

County Councillor Clare Wood said: "Countryside issues and the interests of rural communities are at the heart of the County Council's agenda.

"We are trying to do more to explain the exciting work that the Countryside Service does to a much wider audience. This new display unit will provide a wonderful opportunity to get our message across to local people.

"Anybody attending the shows would be more than welcome to drop in at our stand for a chat with countryside staff and volunteers."
