The Community walking leader and heritage ambassador project is implemented through The Ring of Gullion Landscape Partnership Scheme. The LPS is part of the Heritage Lottery Fund’s programme to conserve and enhance some of the region’s most treasured landscapes. The LPS runs from September 2015 until August 2018.
The total budget for this project is £15,800
The aim of this project is to create a pool of people able to lead groups of walkers around the LP area. It also aims to increase the knowledge base for current and future tour guides, accommodation providers and tour operators in order for these groups to be able to promote the LP area to its full potential. This project will deliver on these aims by:
1. Hosting Walking in your Community Training
2. Hosting training for Heritage Ambassadors.
