Children aged between seven and 11 can enter up to three haiku about what they like about the Lake District by July 1, and these should include their name and age, plus an address, number and email.

Entries can be sent to Clare Bateman, Lindeth Howe, Lindeth Drive, Longtail Hill, Bowness-on-Windermere, Cumbria, LA23 3JF.
