Lake District Search and Mountain Rescue Association (LDSAMRA) are to have a position on a new Monopoly Board being launched in April.  LDSAMRA was chosen by the board manufacturers, Winning Moves UK, following a public vote last year.

They have been given the first place on one of the two utility slots.  The new game will feature more than 30 Lakes landmarks along with with Lake District themed cards.  It is great that the public has thought of the 12 Mountain Rescue Teams covering Cumbria when considering which charity should be given a square on the new board.

It is planned to be on sale before Easter and the LDSAMRA square has a reference to AdventureSmart UK which is a web-based safety awareness initiative that the teams launched last Spring in order to reduce accidents and “make your good day better”.  You can hear more about it here on Radio Cumbria 2hrs 14 minutes into the Caroline Robertson show.
