Richmondshire District Council

Community groups in North Richmondshire still have chance to take a slice of a £10,000 cash pot.

The area partnership covering the area from Gilling West and north to Manfield, west to Newsham and east to Dalton on Tees has £6,400 of its fund unallocated.

Community organisations, charities and parish councils can apply for up to £1,000 to support new projects taking place within the area – to fund  projects as diverse as large sports equipment to smaller community noticeboards.

So far the partnership has awarded:

• North Cowton Parish Council –  £1000 for a village bench
• Eppleby and Forcett Village Hall – £1000 for a security system
• Swaledale Festival – £600 towards the community and education programme
• Gilling West Parish Council - £1000 for flood works
