Programme Manager Peter Moss said, "This ambitious programme is vitally important for the future of the Meres and Mosses area.  Everyone living and working here has their part to play in its protection and enhancement so please spread the word and do something to help today."

Melanie Smith, Meres and Mosses Administrator said, "It has been great working with Shropshire Tourism.  They are extremely approachable, helpful and creative.  We are delighted with our new website."
