2012 photo competition launched!

24th Aug 2012

Show us what South Yorkshire means to you!

We are looking for images that capture what South Yorkshire's countryside means to you - and why it matters. This year we launched the Haythornthwaite Appeal to celebrate, remember and continue the work of our amazing founders.

Ethel and Gerald Haythornthwaite founded our charity nearly 90 years ago. They campaigned, lobbied and raised funds to save areas in and around the Peak District, and were pivotal in setting up Sheffield's Green Belt.

Thanks to them, the attractive landscapes of South Yorkshire and the Peak District still inspire us today.

The 2012 CPRE South Yorkshire photo competition is to celebrate the moors, wildlife, birds, rivers, hills, fields, woods and people of the Peak District and South Yorkshire – something that Ethel and Gerald would have definitely approved of.
