PONIES INTRODUCED TO NATURE RESERVE

Ponies are being introduced to a Richmondshire nature reserve as part of a £30,000 conservation project.

Part of the Foxglove Covert reserve in the heart of Catterick Garrison is in danger of reverting to woodland without the Exmoor ponies which will help control invasive species.

Their introduction is part of a £29,137 scheme that has benefited from £8,756 from the District Council’s Social Fund which support community projects in the five growth areas of Richmondshire.  The authority has set aside £270,000 in this financial year for Colburn, Scotton, Hipswell, Richmond and Leyburn.

UNIQUE TRAIL GETS COUNCIL FUNDING

A unique new mountain bike trail is being created in the Yorkshire Dales thanks to a £50,000 grant from Richmondshire District Council.

The Swale Trail – which will run through Swaledale from Reeth to Keld – is aimed at young mountain bikers and families who want to ride together.

It will be promoted to people with mobility difficulties and families with buggies – and as a ‘multi-user trail’ can also be used by walkers and horse riders.   And 75% of the 12 mile track will be traffic free.
