In 2016 the Parish Council submitted an application to Peak LEADER, through Derbyshire County Council, Peak LEADER supported projects to address various priorities – in our case to support and boost rural tourism.

The LEADER scheme was part of the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE) and funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD). Money from the programme was given to Local Action Groups (LAGs) so that they could award grants locally to businesses and organisations that apply for it.

The Parish Council was awarded a grant of £21,738 for winter lighting, two new fingerposts and 4 map lecterns. More information relating to the winter lighting can be found under Our Village.

The Parish Council is extremely grateful to the EAFRD, Derbyshire County Council and all those who helped us achieve the outcomes we have.
