A voluntary group which works to maintain the Northern Slopes has launched a set of signs to encourage people to think about how they can use nature reserve.
The Northern Slopes Initiative (NSI) has developed 13 signs which are easy to read and understand.
Designed by local illustrator Ruth Whiter (www.ruthwhiter.co.uk), they cover a range of activities – from dog walking, playing and sledging to less strenuous past times such as picnics and watching fireworks or balloons.
The roundels will be used by the NSI on posters, their website and publications about the Slopes.
Chair of the NSI, Bob Franks said: “We hope that people seeing these signs will be encouraged to use the Slopes.
“Many people do not know about the Slopes, or have a negative view of them. There are problems but also plenty of opportunities to do positive activities with family and friends, such as those shown on the signs.”
