Leyburn & Middleham

£76, 534 was awarded by the LEADER Programme to the Leyburn and Mid Wensleydale Business Association to appoint a development worker and raise the economic profiles of Leyburn, Middleham and their hinterlands based on a three year rolling programme.

The development worker will oversee the delivery of a Branding and Promotions Action Plan through the engagement of volunteers from the local and business communities. Leyburn and Middleham Town Councils have agreed to provide ‘touch down’ desk space and meeting facilities at Thornborough Hall and Middleham Key Centre. 

The funding for this project was made available through the Rural Development Programme for England, which is jointly funded by Defra and the European Union.
