Introducing: Love Your National Parks campaign

Posted by Richard Hammond at 07:05 on Wednesday 12 June 2013

National Parks England has launched a campaign 'Love Your National Parks' to celebrate England's 10 National Parks.

Launched on Monday 10 June in the Northumberland National Park by the Environment Minister Richard Benyon, the campaign is being run in collaboration with Defra, Association of National Park Authorities (UK ANPA) and Campaign for National Parks (CNP) with assistance from other supporting partners, such as VisitEngland.

Richard Benyon MP said: "Our National Parks are some of the most treasured places across the country with 90 million visitors every year. National Parks play a key role in rural economic growth, as they are home to thousands of businesses and provide benefits to local communities. I fully support this great campaign and hope it encourages people to visit, enjoy and love our National Parks."

Look out for the campaign's twitter hashtag #lovenationalparks

The campaign will include the annual National Parks Week, 29 July - 4 August 2013, organised by the Association of National Park Authorities, which includes all the 15 National Parks in England, Scotland and Wales.
