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.

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.
