Broads Authority members of staff and volunteers have received their new uniform which comes as part of a five year partnership between Columbia Sportswear and the UK's National Parks.

The sportswear company will work with the Broads Authority and other National Park organisations on initiatives to further the public's understanding of National Parks and encourage more people to enjoy them.

Andy Barker of Columbia Sportswear said: 'Becoming a partner of the UK's National Parks is an unrivalled opportunity to highlight the amazing work conducted by rangers and staff.'

The clothing will soon be available at Broads Authority Tourist Information Centres.

The deal comes at a time when the Broads Authority awaits the results of the BBC Countryfile Magazine National Park of the Year awards.

Voting is open until March 5 and can be done at: BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards 2018: National Park of the Year
