Wider Community Activities

Community Development

We have a key role in supporting organisations to fulfil their objectives. Recent activities have included:

  • Providing space for groups to fundraise, a local group recently raised £500 for St Michaels Hospice through a coffee morning in our Wharfe Room
  • We are currently providing space for Knaresborough Feva to renovate the beautiful Trompe-l’œil paintings that will be decorate the town through the Summer
  • We use our networks and connections to make things happen in the town, recent examples include work with the Knaresborough Museum Association supporting them to move forward following recent setbacks, providing a home for local volunteer led organisations such as Knaresborough Relief in Need and the Project Linus
  • We have also been able to support local groups by hosting sessions such as Carers Resource Support and Macmillan support
  • We are currently mapping the capacity of volunteering in the town
  • We will be co-hosting a “Ageing Well” summit in partnership with Knaresborough Connectors to explore how we can support the ageing population in Knaresborough Better
  • We are working with King James School to ensure that young people are involved in the strategic conversation for the town
