Moorland May 2017

The month-long celebration of all things moorland returns!

After the success of Moorland March 2016, the Making the Most of Moorland team are planning a festival of activities in May 2017 relvolving around the beauty of the Langholm Moor

Last year, some 1222 attended 30 events and generated 140 hours of volunteer time. We're excited to bring the festival back, bigger and better than ever before!

Dr. Cat Barlow, who ran last year's Moorland March said:

"It was a great start, but we think with your help we make this year's even better. We want to help people, businesses and communities to benefit from the wonderful moorland on their doorstep and help them attract more visitors."

The team are busy planning activities and need your help! If you are interested in joining them as a volunteer, business, artist, exhibitor, walker or talker - get in touch! Simply download this form and return it here before 15th February 2017
