Happy New Year from Richmondshire.


As we find ourselves in another lockdown, I wanted to look back at some of the great work NYY did towards the end of 2020 and the plans for 2021.
We were out and about doing detached work at Leyburn and Colburn, young people came for a chat and told us how they had coped during lockdown, changes at school, having to wear masks and not socialising as much. Most of them kept in touch with their friends via social media platforms.
We launched our bauble project in November and had a great response, with 150 packs being sent out across the County. The photo shows some of the baubles made at Colburn Youth Project.
2021 is turning out to be another challenge but we are up for it!
We have some exciting projects planned including a photo competition, geocache hunt and fairy doors (more details to follow soon). We are also looking forward to delivering new and exciting training for our volunteers and of course the vaccine, so we can get out and about meeting you all again.
Stay Safe and Keep Smiling - we are here to support you.
