Grants for Scarborough rural areas

UK money in the form of a five pound note and various coinsVillages 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 under the 'Northern Area Committee and Central Rural Area Committee - Grant Applications' section.


The deadline for submitting completed application forms is Friday 25 October.
