Richmond Town Council holds the Market Charter for an area of 6.23 miles radius of the Town. This means that all Fairs/Car Boot Sales/Craft or Collectors Fair held within this area should have our permission.

To enable us to uphold this Charter we advertise annually in the local press (copy attached) we are to be informed of all Fairs, Car Boot Sales, Craft or Collectors Fairs that are to be held. We are aware that not all Parishes may have seen this notice so we are circulating this information to all areas that fall within the 6.23 miles.

Again, to uphold the Charter we also charge a stallage fee of £10 payable to Richmond Town Council 28 days prior to the Fair/Sale taking place.

Curlew – The Friendly Cycling Group (Scorton)

Perhaps you have a bike lurking at the back of your garage or have been meaning to get some exercise but feel overwhelmed by the prospect of an expensive gym membership? Well, the Curlew Cycling Group could be just for you. We go for leisurely bike rides on quiet country lanes on the last Saturday of every month.

Our rides set off from villages in the area at 11.00am. We are totally non-competitive with all ages joining us. It’s free to cycle with us and you’ll meet some friendly people who want exercise and to obtain all the benefits that cycling can bring. A coffee and cake stop is always included (an essential part of cycling!), so give John Yorke a ring on 07795 097984 or email him: . Our next ride will be on Saturday 29th October from Scorton village hall. (Catterick Village Nov, East Cowton Dec).
