Grants for Scarborough rural areas
Villages in the Scarborough central rural area are being
urged to come forward with projects and schemes that could benefit
from a share of £22,000.
Our Central Rural Area Committee has the money available as
a result of an under-spend in the last financial year.
Villages that are eligible to benefit from the scheme are those
covered by the parish councils of Snainton, Brompton-by-Sawdon,
Wykeham, North Moor and Ruston, Hutton Buscel, West Ayton, East
Ayton, Irton, Seamer and Crossgates, Scalby, Newby, Burniston,
Cloughton, Staintondale and Ravenscar.
Cllr David Jeffels, Committee Chairman said:
"In the past we have been able to award grants to a wide range
of village community initiatives, which have improved the quality
of life for many people.
"In these difficult economic times we appreciate that even a
modest grant can kick-start an aspiration in a village and
encourage further fund raising to achieve a goal to provide an
amenity or environmental improvement. Therefore I am sure this
money will be put to very good use in our villages, as it has been
in the past."
The committee is asking communities and parish councils to come
forward with their project ideas as soon as possible to enable them
to be processed and decided on at the next committee meeting on
Tuesday 12 November at St Mark's Church Hall, Newby.
Application forms can be downloaded now from www.scarborough.gov.uk/areacommittees
