My Journey Summer Trip

It was our trip today in ‘My Journey’ it was decided upon a trip on the river and a picnic in Museum Gardens. There was planning, budgeting and a ‘healthy picnic’ all skills we have developed this term. Although the sun wasn’t shining the weather was ok and we all had so much fun it didn’t matter!
A thank you to City Cruises York for giving us discount and helping us budget and for a very enjoyable cruise along the river.
Well done to all our members who attend ‘My Journey’ and a big thank you to Becca and Georgie too!boat trip 4

Gardening Project

The weather might be a little miserable outside, that didn’t dampen our gardening group, we finished off part 1 of our gardening project outside. A big thank you from everyone at Deans Garden Centre for the donation of plants – they look fab and thank you to Rod Drake for getting us the tyres that the members have decorated.
In a few weeks we will see lots of colour outside, pop over and have a look we’d love to see you!outside1outside 2outside 3outside 4

We had a very special visitor 24th March 2017

We had a very special visitor pop in and see us on Friday the 24th he was surprising Cheryl Pratt from The Graver a care home situated not far from The Hut.  The Gravers residents often attend sessions at The Hut and thought it would be lovely to ask Peter Andre to come and see what we did.

He made the day of one members in particular who attends our service and she had been a big fan of his for so long, he was a real gentleman and posed for photos, spoke to all the members and staff and we are extremely grateful for him doing that.

Congratulations to Cheryl on your surprise and thank you for sharing him with The Hut.

Thank you Peter for being so nice, you will always be welcome to come back and see us!

Kind regards,



Visit our 3D Art project at York Hospital

The members and Jonny have been working on our new project that went up in the hospital yesterday for all to view.  It is situated on the main corridor and showcases some of the work that our members do here at The Hut.

We would love you to go and have a look and let us know what you think,  you would be very welcome to pop in and have a cuppa after seeing our project and see some more of the amazing work that happens here.

Thank you to everyone who was involved and Jonny for getting our members creativity flowing.

We look forward to hearing all your comments

Our pool table has a new look!

We set out to make money in our Christmas fair last year to recover the pool table and get new cues and balls and also some other equipment for the Wednesday sessions.

Today we had Recovering Pool Tables from Cheshire come and repair the table for us,  they did us a really good deal and donated new balls and cues for our members.  We would highly recommend them to others, and thank you to Frank who completed the repair.  pool

Since repairs were completed this morning the pool table has seen some action with a couple of games and everyone commenting on how much better they are playing!

We will be holding a pool competition soon so watch this space and our social media for dates!  Or better still pop in and get practising!
