The Dartmoor Access Forum is currently looking for volunteers to help provide advice to Dartmoor National Park Authority and other organisations on ways to improve access and recreation for all in the National Park.
The Forum is an independent advisory body of volunteers who have the 'passion, skills, knowledge and enthusiasm to help make a difference for Dartmoor' says the National Park Authority.
It was established by the National Park Authority in November 2002 and meets in public four times each year.
The Forum is keen to hear from people with experience in a range of areas including leisure, tourism and recreational activities, farming, land management or traditional countryside pursuits, nature conservation, archaeology, education or local business. They'd also welcome applications from minority groups, young people and people with disabilities who are happy to add their voice and experience.
Members are appointed for a period of three years, and act in a voluntary capacity.
Further information about the Forum and application forms can be downloaded from Dartmoor National Park Authority's website.
