Good News – Participatory Budgeting for Parishes – February 2011

Recently the Parish Council applied to the scheme that offered £2000 to support local projects. The proposals received were voted upon by residents who kindly attended the Public Meeting in February. The projects submitted have been endorsed by Rural Action Yorkshire and the money has been received.

The money has been allocated as follows: £1,150 to support the Caretaker Scheme thus avoiding an increase in the precept in the immediate future; £350 for the War Memorial to improve the inscription to C Frank; £200 to St Chad’s to clear the area to the rear of the building with the possibility of creating a memorial garden in the future; £300 to the Village Hall for improvements to the inscription on the memorial stone at the entrance to the Playing Field.
