The Easter holiday activity sessions that were to be run by York City FC Foundation and York City Knights Foundation have been cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.
It is hoped that session planned for the summer holidays will be able to go ahead.
The Westfield and Dringhouses & Woodthorpe Ward Committees are funding Easter holiday activities for young people in the area.
The sessions will be run by York City Knights Foundation and York City FC Foundation – dates, times and locations are set out on the posters below.
If there are any changes to these plans, we will post an update.
There is free outdoor fun for young people on Little Hob Moor (off Tadcaster Road) on Friday 16th August from 1.30pm to 3pm.
The York City Knights Foundation will be running another of their popular ‘Arena’ sessions. There is no need to book, just turn up!

The sessions are funded by the Dringhouses & Woodthorpe Ward Committee.
During the Spring and Summer of 2018, York City Knights Foundation delivered a number of activity sessions for young people across Dringhouses & Woodthorpe, funded from the ward budget.
These included mobile skate park sessions at Moor Lane Youth Centre and on the Revival estate, and outdoor inflatable sessions at Woodthorpe Green and Foxwood Park.
The Foundation has produced a summary of the activities that took place, with some key learning points for the future.
Free outdoor activities for young people over 7 years of age get underway in Foxwood, Woodthorpe and Dringhouses next week.
The sessions, which also ran during the Easter and half-term holidays, are organised by the York City Knights Foundation and are funded by the Westfield and Dringhouses & Woodthorpe Ward Committees.
