And Grange Prom Youth Club will also get £1,000 to help complete the final phase of the town’s skate park by installing a high quarter pipe.

Thel committee also agreed a £900 grant for Kendal Festival of Food, towards a food and drink-themed art installation project involving local primary schools.
