Widening horizons

Lake District Mobility is on a good roll with Trampers having been taken out on over 300 visits in the Lake District! As we file your membership and hire forms, we cannot help but feel thankful of the wide reach of the Tramper scheme. The Trampers are of course very popular amongst our native Cumbrians and northerners in general. However, we see visitors from all over the UK using the Trampers, from the Highlands of Scotland, all the way to the southern parts of Cornwall and Somerset. We have even had Tramper users from abroad!

Here's the thing: annual membership of the Lake District Mobility really opens up the countryside for you. For only £10/year you not only get to use the Trampers in the Lake District, but also Trampers on 47 sites across the South West, through the Tramper hire scheme set up by our role models and mentors at Countryside Mobility in Devon. Indeed, we have had Countryside Mobility members taking advantage of their membership here in the Lakes, taking Trampers out for a spin at Whinlatter and the Langdales, by next spring Calvert Trust! With Trampers getting launched (soon!) at Ravenscar and Sutton Bank in North York Moors, your membership will give you even more choices to enjoy the great outdoors.

And this is our goal - for you to have more opportunities to engage with nature, enjoy the fresh air and to spend time enjoying activities with your loved ones.

We are looking forward to welcoming members to the North York Moors Mobility scheme and enjoying a good roll! (Watch this space - once the scheme is launched in North Yorkshire we'll be singing it from the rooftops)!

We'd also like to extend a warm welcome to Cumbria to all the Countryside Mobility members who are visiting and going out on Trampers here. We have a lot of catching up to do to match your offering in the South West, but we're on the job!

Finally, we'd like to encourage all Lake District Mobility members to make good use of their membership and to look out for Tramper opportunities if visiting the South West and, soon, North York Moors.

Happy rolling!
