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.
York is to continue its digital journey following an announcement that a number of Community Hubs will receive free WiFi in spring 2015.
The WiFi installation is funded by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), as part of York’s status as one of 22 SuperConnected Cities and is the latest step in City of York Council’s Digital City campaign.
The free WiFi will be available to residents and visitors while they are in public space. The provision will allow events and seminars to take place and will also help residents communicate with relatives and friends digitally.
WiFi will be installed in the following Community Hubs:
68 Youth Centre
Bell Farm Community Centre
Burton Stone Community Centre
Clarence Street 30 (Sycamore House)
Clementhorpe Community Centre
Foxwood Community Centre, Bellhouse Way (due on 25th February)
