Council cash increases community involvement
Published on Monday, 4th February 2019
A district council grant has helped raise community spirit in Romanby.
Over the last year, the money from Hambleton District Council’s ‘Making a Difference Fund’ has been used to help with improvements to the War Memorial and small park which are at the centre of Romanby village. The funds have also been used to support community events linked to the 100th anniversary of WW1 including the Re-Dedication ceremony of the War Memorial, Picnic in the Park and the Beacon Lighting ceremony.
Romanby Parish Council was awarded £1500 from the fund
- Cash for the Making a Difference scheme comes from ongoing cost savings that councillors are reinvesting into the local community. Each scheme must meet one of the council’s key priorities – driving economic vitality, enhancing health and wellbeing, caring for the environment and providing a special place to live. And each must show that there is community involvement and represents value for money.
