Disappointing to see that a flower bed wall in Corlett Court has been damaged by vandals. Hopefully the culprits will be identified and forced to pay for repairs! The area will be tidied up prior to permanent repairs being completed before the end of the month.
Elsewhere the Foxwood Residents Association are meeting tonight. One of the issues to be considered may be the location of additional car parking in the area.

Cllr Sheena Jackson has criticised the Council for failing to clear up fly tipping on the Foxwood Park.

A report outlining proposals to “harness the expertise of community groups, provide volunteering opportunities and improve York’s green spaces” will be considered by the executive member for culture, leisure and tourism on 18 April.
The report sets out proposals to allocate £50,000 per annum funding to community projects at five parks in the city. “The proposals follow a wide ranging consultation by York CVS on behalf of the council”.

The funding has been specifically aimed towards five sites in the city. Proposals for each site were received by York CVS and have been recommended for approval including:
These are the kind of items that are not taken by the normal recycling collections.
This is a “one off” opportunity to clear the garden of disused hard plastic items.
There will also be a limited supply of replacement recycling boxes at the event.
NB. Recycling collection dates in Foxwood change from next week
