Yorkshire Dales National Park - Presentation Day






Carl Lis (YDNP) presented Ray Duffy, Sandra Wilkinson and Andy Hall with the cheque.

The event on July 12th. was a photo-opportunity for YDNP and brought together representatives from YDNP, B4RN Ltd. Melling, B4RN for Casterton , the Red Rose Cave and Pothole Club and South Lakeland District Council to celebrate the completion of the final Casterton Fell spur of the local fibre network and particularly to acknowledge the financial assistance given by YDNP from their Sustainable Development Fund. YDNP chairman Carl Lis came along, together with Sustainable Development Officer Andrea Burden, Social Media Officer Andy Kay (who acted as their official photographer) and apprentice Hannah Kingsbury (from Barbon). Chris Conder and Dave Ryall were there from B4RN Melling; Ray Duffy (President), Andy Hall and Sandra and Mel Wilkinson from the caving club; Councillor Nick Cotton from SLDC; and some of the usual suspects from the local Project Team! The main focus of the event was to present two promotional cheques. B4RN Melling had received a loan of 9,950 earmarked for local project, and the Red Rose Caving Club had been given a grant of 8,000 which they had matched from other sources to fund the reconfiguration of part of the club premises including new tackle store, grey water system and their new library and resource centre.
