Today may be American Independence Day, but it's also #ThankYouDay, an initiative by Virgin Media O2 and its Together Fund, from which THCC were lucky to secure a small grant that will enable us to say exactly that: THANK YOU to our wonderful supporters, volunteers, collaborators, donors, hirers, tenants, trustees and staff. There's more in the offing of how we plan to demonstrate our thanks, details to follow.

For now, though, we want to say that, without YOUR help, the centre wouldn't be what it is or where it is today. We have some fantastic people with us, behind us, and at our side - the pandemic only verifying their mettle.

Thank you all. Truly.

Keeping the centres grounds looking good is a mammoth task. We are very lucky to have some dedicated volunteers, a new youth group growing club and our resident group pictured here from @blueberrycommunity who help with all the weeding, sweeping, growing and singing. Thank you one and all. ...

We are so happy that our very own @food_circle_york have been shortlisted for best shop and/or market for the BBC Food and Farming Awards this year. They work so hard at what they do. #loveyourwork ...

Moo Music York, our Thursday morning music group for 0-5 year old children and their parents has just dropped off some sample CDs for anyone who is thinking about coming along. www.moo-music.co.uk/areas/York ...

It is with enormous sadness that we learned of the death of Mrs Margaret Poole, who sadly died a few days ago. Margaret was vice chairman for over 10 years at Tang Hall Community Centre in the late 1990’s.

We would not be here today without her. Margaret never took centre stage, rebuffed praise and worked tirelessly.

Margaret along with Bernadette Oxberry and Tom Gibson were the force of nature, the team who fought hard to rebuild the centre after the fire which ravaged the building in 2000.

Thank you for all that you did for Tang Hall.

With lockdown easing we have doubled security at the centre. Thank you to our foxes (Max and Paddy) for keeping Tang Hall safe whilst the city sleeps.

If you've only seen your own four walls for the last year, and you're a fan of horticulture, you may be interested in our 'Veg Heads Growing Squad'.

We're holding a taster session on May 18th, 9am - 4pm (pick up at 9am from the centre).

Places are limited, due to social distancing/Covid regulations, and we hope to give priority to those who have been isolated through the pandemic.

So, if you're a 'spudding' gardener, don't 'beet' about the bush and don't leave it to 'to-marrow' to get in touch.

O-kale?

At last, wheelchair accessible doors come to the centre! Thank you @morrisons , the Jack Brunton Charitable Trust and the Norman Collinson Charitable Trust for funding new accessible doors at the centre. It makes a real difference for our community. ...

It seems like a lifetime ago...
But a year today was the day Tang Hall stood up and looked after its own. A community coming together to send out emergency food parcels, hot meals and vital support for those who needed it.

We love you Tang Hall. It is an honour to still be standing a year later.
