Great Success for the Award Winning Cleveland Way Adoption Scheme

20th November 2017

The Cleveland Way Adoption Scheme has achieved major recognition by being awarded as the Best Project in the National Park UK Volunteer Awards. On Saturday 18th November our Family and Youth Volunteers Co-ordinator Tammy Andrews, who manages our Adoption Scheme, went to collect the award with one of our original Adoption Scheme families, the Beaumonts at the Kendal Mountain Festival.  The award was presented by wildlife expert and explorer, Steve Backshall.

Tammy said "We are proud of all our Cleveland Way Adoption Scheme Volunteers who do a fantastic job ensuring that their adopted sections are patrolled regularly and any issues are reported"

The project involves the adoption of 25 lengths of the Cleveland Way, where volunteers carry out patrols several times per year with minor maintenance and report bigger issues for our Maintenance Ranger Andrew Carter and the Cleveland Way Volunteers or National Park Apprentices to tackle.

The adopters are a mix of individuals, Explorer Club families and local groups such as Scouts, the Hardmoors Ultrarunners and Scarborough & Ryedale Mountain Rescue.

The Adoption Scheme will feature in a BBC Countrfile edition dedicated to the Cleveland Way which is being shown on December 3rd 2017.
