You may be aware that the Borough of Barnsley is a consituent member of the Peak District National Park as part of Barnsley is included in the National Park in the Langsett area.
There was a constructive meeting today with Sally Kempson of the Peak District National Park Study Centre wich is located at Losehill Hall. Sally runs the Youth Rangers Award Scheme which is available to organised groups of young people from schools and other settings. It provides training in aspects of the work of National Park Rangers and is accredited through ASDAN.
More information, including course details and costs, is available on the Youth Ranger Website or direct from Sally Kempson at Losehill Hall. I believe some taster days are run free of charge, so it may be worthwhile asking about them in particular.
