Name a place in the Lake District after for your Mum this Mother’s Day to win a competition prize that will make a truly memorable gift!

The Lake District National Park is giving people the chance to name a bridge at High Dam, near Windermere, in honour of their Mum, with a special plaque to commemorate the occasion - a prize which holds a value of £2,000.

Chris Tomlin, Park Management Team Leader at Lake District National Park, said: “There are personal touches all across the Lake District, where people have dedicated an area to celebrate an occasion or remember a loved one against the most beautiful backdrop. It’s a really special gift to give, so we’re excited to be giving someone the chance to make this dedication in honour of their Mum this Mother’s Day.”

The Lake District National Park’s donation scheme gives people the opportunity to support the conservation of the landscape whilst dedicating a bridge, gate or signpost to a loved one, creating a special place for families to visit and enjoy.

Chris added: “The donations made towards these special dedications are vital to maintaining this beautiful park. Due to the millions of visitors that head to the Lake District every year, and our Cumbrian climate, we are constantly carrying out improvements and maintenance work and it wouldn’t be possible without the support of donations.”
