Coxwold Village - Pastures and Moors

It's done!!

Over the last year as well as a letter informing villagers of our plans we requested donations from them.  We are extremely grateful to all who have donated so far.  If you would like to make a donation, it’s not too late! – there will be lots of new smaller kitchen equipment to purchase once the building works are completed.

The scaffolding erected to stabilise the roof while the chimney was removed and new steels inserted has now been taken down and our Village Hall is now looking like its old self...

We searched high and low for grants to cover the remainder of our budget and set about applying for them with eagerness.  Over the year we have been awarded a total of £25,300 from the following:

£10,000 from Awards for All (specifically for larger kitchen equipment)

£  7,500 from Garfield Weston

£  2,000 from Tesco Bags for Help

£  4,300 from Hambleton making a Difference

£  1,500 from North Yorkshire County Council

We also made several other unsuccessful applications to Reaching Communities; Jewsons, Calor Gas, Bernard Sunley and the Co-op.
