A weekly ‘Community Tea Room’ is being established at the Moor Lane Youth Centre on Wains Road, with support from Ward Committee funding.
Every Wednesday from 12 noon to 1.30pm residents are invited to pop in for a chat and a cuppa. This initiative comes hot on the heels of successful weekly ‘Community Hub’ sessions at Foxwood and Chapelfields.
Children over 7 years of age are invited to take part in a free skate park session at Moor Lane Youth Centre on Wains Road on Friday 1 June from 10am to 11.30am.
The session is run by the York City Knights Foundation, and follows a successful series of events held over the Easter holidays. Further sessions will take place over the summer holidays.
Residents in the Tang Hall area are asking why a £10,000 grant made last year for the improvement of the Tang Hall Community Centre has not been spent?
The money was part of the very much reduced budget now made available to Ward Committees.
It was to have been spent on remodelling the Centre, making it potentially easier to generate additional income.
The Centre is one of 4 in the City which are under threat of closure following the decision of the Council to stop its annual support grants.
Tang Hall CC, was at the centre of a controversy earlier in the year, when all the key posts on the management committee were taken over by local Labour Councillors.

We also understand that the Council is considering closing down the Moor Lane youth centre in Dringhouses.
The well established and popular centre serves the whole of the west of York and is one of very few purpose designed facilities aimed at young people in the City’s suburbs.
