Richmondshire District Council

Richmondshire veterans have helped carve a wooden case to display a ceremonial knife presented to the District Council.

Nepalese Ambassador, Dr Durga Bahadur Subedi gave the authority a ceremonial Khukuri - a Nepalese knife with an inwardly curved blade which is a characteristic weapon of the Gurkha.

It will displayed in the council chamber at Mercury House in a wooden case made through the Healthy Horizons programme which sees veterans try their hand at new skills. They worked with master craftsman, Terry Harrington, to make the case.
