Lake users advise on Windermere

Windermere is a popular tourist destination

Volunteers are being sought to make sure people get the most out of England's largest lake.

The Windermere Lake User Forum is an independent management group made up of transport providers, anglers, sailors, canoeists and rowers.

It advises the Lake District National Park (LDNP) and South Lakeland District Council on issues such as conservation, recreation and visitors to the lake.

Four places have become available on the 11-strong team.

Members serve a minimum of two years and can put themselves forward for re-selection.

Suzy Grindley, LDNP catchment projects co-ordinator, said: "It's vital we have people with experience and views on how best the lake should be managed.

"They gather comments and circulate information.

"This really is a great opportunity to make a difference to the running and future of our world famous lake."
