Monsal Trail Cycle Hire at Hassop Station
The grant was used to help fund the setting up of a new cycle hire centre and function room.
The site is unique in the area, standing on the site of a former train station on the refurbished Monsal Trail railway line.
In April 2010 the business was purchased by Hassop Station Ltd to create a café and bookshop. Funds provided assistance to alter the former station waiting room into a meeting room for hire and to provide additional cafe space.
The cycle hire Is providing a popular local attraction and encourages visitors to stay in the area longer. The function room is used out of café hours for additional social functions and business meeting providing additional revenue to the core business.
The former discussed building is now an attractive destination, offering local produce and crafts for sale alongside refreshments and the opportunity to hire a bike and ride along the Monsal Trail.
Leader grant £21,397.50.
