Update posted by Emily just last week with a suggested Hangover cure
In addition to the characterful structures mentioned previously – here are three photos of the faces of a stone near to Worm Sike Rigg – it’s inscribed to “G. BAKER AGED 68 YEARS WHO WAS LOST ON THE 5 OF DECEM 1878 AND WAS FOUND HERE ON THE 26 OF JANUARY 1879”. The supposition is G Baker died of exposure out on the moors and the stone was erected as a memorial to the man and the tragic event.
Emily is carrying on Sam’s good work – this is a photograph she’s taken of a Heptageniid down the end of a microscope.
Following on from the previous North York Moors, Coast and Hills LEADER Programme which finished in 2013, we submitted a bid to Defra in September 2014 for a new LEADER Programme which would run from 2015 to 2021.
We’re just waiting to hear whether we have been successful, and we’ll share any news as soon as possible!
If we are successful, the new LEADER Programme will be looking for projects that generate jobs and support the local economy under the following six priority areas:
- Increasing Farm Productivity
- Micro and Small Enterprise and Farm Diversification
- Rural Tourism
- Rural Services
- Cultural and Heritage Activity
- Increasing Forestry Productivity
In the meantime we are working out how to approach these priorities and what we would like to fund over the next six years so we’ll be ready to go as soon as we find out if this area’s LEADER Programme is approved. Keep in touch through our website, follow us on Twitter Follow @northyorkmoors and keep an eye on this Blog.
And if you’re wondering whether last year’s blatant attempt to get someone from Iceland to view our Blog succeeded – unfortunately not. But we won’t give up – við hlökkum til annars árs varðveislu í North York Moors þjóðgarðurinn og við munum tryggja að láta þig vita hvað við erum að gera í gegnum bloggið okkar.
