Wolsingham Skate Park

Weardale AAP, working with Wolsingham Parish Council has completed a project to build a Skate Park in Wolsingham.  What started as an idea by a young teenager developed into a £50,000 project which the WAP supported through our Area Budget with £20,000 of funding. The Skate Park encourages day visitors to the area increasing business opportunities for local traders as well as giving people of all ages a different way of keeping fit and healthy.

Small Grants Fund

In order to support as many local groups in Weardale as possible, the WAP Board have supported a Small Grants Fund for the last ten years.  The aim of the fund is to provide small amounts of funding which can have a big impact for smaller groups who are normally excluded from other funding sources.  These small groups are vital in rural communities such as those found in Weardale and are instrumental in tackling issues such as social isolation.

Projects supported by your local county councillors

You can find out more about the local projects supported by your local county councillors through their Neighbourhood Budget on the Your councillors page.
