Weekend litter pick success

Residents joined local Lib Dem councillors with community clean-up activities around Dringhouses & Woodthorpe ward on 2nd and 3rd September.

On Saturday 2nd, the Chaloners Road / Eason View area was litter picked, and on Sunday 3rd a larger team tackled the Askham Bar old Park & Ride site and surrounding area.

Over 20 bags of rubbish collected at Askham Bar

Cllr Ann Reid joined the litter pick

A number of passers by told us that they have recently seen rats in and around the car park, which is concerning but not surprising given the disgusting amount of food waste and packaging that some irresponsible people see fit to dump here.

Ashbourne Way/Acomb Wood Close footpaths to be resurfaced

Residents are being offered a discount on any new driveway requirements that they may wish to commission while plant is in the area.

Another successful year for A level students in York

Children’s Services leaders in York today (17 August) are congratulating A level students across the city on achieving an excellent set of results.

Provisional results for York school sixth forms and York College show that the very high standards of previous years have been maintained and initial results for the city indicate that A level results remain consistently amongst the best in the country.

York school sixth forms – All Saints RC, Archbishop Holgate’s CE, Fulford, Huntington and Joseph Rowntree – and York College are reporting strong results including ‘best ever’ performances.

Early results for the schools show that across the board young people will be able to get to the universities of their choice, including those applying to Oxbridge universities and medical courses. This strong position is being maintained despite the significant changes to the content and structure of A and AS level courses this year.
