£10,000 available for community groups in north Richmondshire

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.

  • North Cowton Parish Council –  £1,000 for a village bench
  • Eppleby and Forcett Village Hall – £1,000 for a security system
  • Swaledale Festival – £600 towards the community and education programme
