Appeal for more volunteer helpers
Yesterdays expanded “Community Hub” has been hailed a success by those who attended. The extra events, which included a climbing wall (above), Knights Rugby and Police property marking, ensured that there was a steady stream of visitors.
The idea for the expansion of activities was prompted by the JRHT who used the event to assess community needs in their Woodlands estate
The Hub’s decision to hand out free lunch-bags to children has been widely praised. The bags are a substitute for the free school meals which are available during term time.
Now the Hub is seeking more volunteers to help with future events. The Hub will continue to open on each Friday during the summer.
There will also be activities at the community centre (Bellhouse Way) on 13th, 22nd and 29th August when the Knights Rugby Foundation will be present.
NB. There will be a Bingo session at the Community Centre later today (Saturday). Doors open 6:45pm. “Eyes down” 7:30pm. Entrance £2 (includes tea/coffee & biscuits)
We’ve asked residents to nominate the highest growing weeds on public highways in the City.
These are roads, footpaths , bridges etc which should by now have been treated for weed growth by the York Council.
If left untreated the weeds will gradually break up the surface of the highway causing additional expense when remedial work is undertaken.
The weed control programme is normally sub contracted by the Council. Residents may have seen (or not this year) quad bikers in some streets spraying weed killer
Garden open day tomorrow Saturday lunch time
