Grant for community hall


Newby and Scalby Community Hall has received a grant of £5,573.

The cash – which is part of a £500,000 pot – has been distribute­d by waste management and recycling company Yorwaste and Yorventure, a registered environmen­tal body.

There are a number of other recipients across Whitby and Ryedale.

Steve Barker, managing director of Yorwaste, said: “We are pleased that so many community and environmen­tal projects close to our landfill sites were able to benefit from these grants over the last 12 months.

“Close to £11 million has been awarded to an amazing 677 projects since the fund was first establishe­d and we are very proud to have been able to provide support across our operating areas.”

Yorventure Chairman Neil Carrigan said: “We are very grateful to Yorwaste for the contributi­ons that make this possible, and we are also enormously grateful to the community groups who envisage these projects, apply for funds, and then bring the projects to life.”
