The Skelton Townscape Heritage Project is unique amongst National Lottery-funded Townscape schemes in the North East, having been originated and now run by a local community group, Skelton Villages Civic Pride.

Together with our partners and the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), our mission is to re-vitalise Skelton High Street over the four and a half years to summer 2020.

We will carry out a whole range of activities which will support the physical work of change by providing a greater understanding of Skelton’s rich and long history.

We will use the work of the project to engage with the local community of Skelton and to seek to involve as many as possible as volunteers on different aspects of our work and activities.

If you feel you would like to offer some of your time as a volunteer, please visit our volunteer page.
