Peak District National Park volunteer rangers have been presented with a certificate and £1,000 to help people with health problems to go walking in the countryside.

The presentation came after the Peak District’s band of nearly 300 volunteer rangers was named National Parks UK Volunteer Group of the Year for their work leading health walks for people with physical or mental health problems.

The money will be used to help re-start Next Steps Walks which had to stop when funding came to an end after NHS re-structuring last year.
