Richmondshire District Council

Area Partnership grant scheme funds new benches

Two new community picnic benches have been installed in Hipswell.

The benches give local people a Covid-19 safe and open space to meet up with friends and family.

Hipswell Parish Council received a grant of £933 towards the £1245 scheme from the district council’s Area Partnership grant scheme.

Richmondshire District Council’s five Area Partnerships - for the Upper Dales, Central (including Richmond), Lower Wensleydale, Garrison and North Richmondshire areas - each have £10,000 to award to local projects. To find out more about the funding stream check out our Area Partnerships page.
