The Rolling Stones have been singing for more than 40 years about the difficulties of getting satisfaction but we like to think that we’ve got it covered on National Trails…….but do you agree?
Once again, this summer will see National Trail Officers, team members and volunteers out on the Trails network armed with a User Survey asking you what you think about the particular Trail you are on and about National Trails in general.
If you are “lucky” enough to be approached, please don’t just say what you think we want to hear but give us an honest opinion. As National Trails are funded by both national and local government, its your (and my!) hard earned taxes which pay for the work we undertake – its important that you get the standard of experience you want and expect.
You can also complete a survey form here – we’re interested in your views whether you’ve actually used a National Trail or not.
There’s another way you can help too. We’re gathering opinions about why National Trails are important – both as the best long-distance trails and as options for recreation of any sort. We want to make the best case possible for National Trails to stay at the top of any list for experiencing our beautiful countryside.
Would you give us some considered opinions on any or all of the following questions?
Would the UK be worse off if National Trails didn’t exist?
Why would you chose a journey on a National Trail rather than any other sort of recreational experience?
What sort of inspiration have you taken from a trip/trips on a National Trail?
Why are National Trails important specifically to you?
Have you got stories to tell about the people you’ve met on the Trail, the charities who’ve benefited from your use of the National Trail or the “challenge” element of your visit? If so please click here to send us the details.
We’ll put all the responses we get into a hat and 5 lucky winners will receive a National Trail goodie bag.
