Good to see that the York Council is taking a tentative step towards reinstating the skip service.
The absence of the skips in recent months has contributed to an increase in dumping in the area. The skip will visit the Chapelfields, Foxwood and Kingsway areas during the next couple of months
DATE 26 Jan – 27 Jan 19

LOCATION York Minster
York residents are invited to experience unbeatable, panoramic views of York from the highest point in the city – York Minster’s central tower – for free as part of the 2019 York Residents’ Festival.
Admission to the Minster is free all year round for York residents, but for the festival the cathedral is also offering residents free tower trips across the weekend, which normally cost £5 each.*
On the Saturday, people can also enjoy free interactive activities in the awe-inspiring surroundings of the cathedral’s 13th century Chapter House, including:
- Drop in family sessions to create a Heart Of Yorkshire inspired sun catcher (10am-3pm)
- Object handling sessions with items from the cathedral’s historic collection (11am-2pm)
- Noah’s Ark themed Little Explorer backpacks to help young explorers discover the Minster (9am-4pm) and an activity area for young children with books and toys linking to the Minster.
