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.

So...who's taking part in THCC's LEEK SHOW? Do you have what it takes to produce a humongous leek?!

Sowing time is now, with the judging in September. If you would like some leek seedlings, pop into the centre in a couple of weeks' time and we'll start you off on your leek-growing journey.

Green-fingered gardening gurus and soothsayers of the soil, maybe you harbour an age old horticultural secret that helps you produce some whoppers. We won't believe it 'til we see it.

The centre's fundraiser will be speaking to Rotary York Ainsty this evening, about the project to refurbish the centre's kitchen.

With regards to our fundraising, we just need to raise a further £190 by tomorrow to be in with the best chance of reaching our overall goal; this will increase our exposure on the crowdfunder platform for when Aviva employees make their own pledges. The link to donate is: https://www.avivacommunityfund.co.uk/new-kitchen-needed

A sincere and huge thank you to everyone who has donated so far. 💗

Thank you to the Rotary York Ainsty who have just presented us with a Community Citation for demonstrating that fellowship, leadership and service can make a better place to live and work. We in turn say thank you to all our volunteers and wider team who do the graft to get things done. ...

Six months on and this picture still brings a proud tear to my eye. Remembering how much graft the local community did for itself through volunteering to look after its most in need. #tanghallandproud ...

With the National Lottery's help, we did.

More than 6,000 hot meals, food parcels and medicines delivered to those in need within the Tang Hall and wider communities over the summer.

Thank you to everyone who made it happen, including those who play the Lotto.
