Rivers, lakes or broads projects which contribute to the improvement of a national park could receive a £2,000 or £500 grant as part of the annual Park Protector Award scheme sponsored by the Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust.

Whether the project is improving biodiversity, restoring built or natural heritage, protecting or campaigning against a threat, promoting rural skills and volunteering or youth engagement or something else entirely, the Campaign for National Parks says it wants to know.

The annual ward celebrates the work being done to protect and improve national parks across England and Wales with the winner receiving a £2,000 bursary from RHCT and a runner up receiving £500 courtesy of Breedon Group.

So far there are 13 National Parks in England and Wales most of them with coastal and inland waterways. Recent winners of the award are the Arun and Rother Connections in the South Downs National Park, which restored swathes of wildlife habitat or Fell Futures in the Lake District which passed on traditional skills.

Nominations for the award should be in by Tuesday 31 July. Forms can be found at: org.uk/park-protector-award
