Boost for Foxwood Community Centre from Greens estate agent

Just days before the York Council, scraps its grant to the Foxwood Community Centre, Greens Estate-Agent have stepped in with an offer of sponsorship.

That have announced that;

 “As a way of supporting the local community and the people who use the community centre in Foxwood and all the projects and services it provides, I will donate £20 from the completion of any house sold in the YO24 2 & YO24 3 areas.

This can then start to help them in a time of need which can be put back into the community”

The Centre  and Foxwood Residents Association are seeking additional sponsorship from local businesses


On Thursday 12th February 2015 a new cafe opens in Acomb at Foxwood Community Centre… but this will be no ordinary café.

Each month a local business will be showcased aimed at highlighting the many and various local small businesses in the area.

February’s event will feature Rose’s Button Box, owned by  a local craftswoman, Julie Nacey,  who  will be bringing along her beautiful home sewn gifts for all the family including her new Easter range.

Acomb Explore will also  be popping along  bringing books for sale, and free books for babies under 5.

The café, open between 09.30am and 11.30am,  will be serving a variety of fresh baked refreshments including scones and cakes.

Sue Galloway from Foxwood Residents Association commented:

“There are a surprising number of  local crafts people who are designing and making innovative items and we wanted to highlight their skills.  Some of these businesses are extremely successful and this is one way of bringing their skills to a wider audience. It is also a good way of exchanging skills as well as having a friendly chat over a cup of tea.  Each month we will be featuring a different local business and we are keen to hear from local entrepreneurs who can contact me on York 01904 794111”..

The craft cafe will open on the 2nd Thursday of each month 9.30-11.30 am at Foxwood community centre, Bellhouse Way, York, YO24 3HY.
