Burnholme Community Hub, Tang Hall

Please note that this is a temporary venue. We will be returning to Oaken Grove Community Centre in Haxby from November 2022.

Sessions are held in a large community room at Burnholme Community Hub in Tang Hall. This is a well ventilated space, which is fully accessible for wheelchairs and walkers. The room is located on the first floor, however there is a lift between floors. You will find an accessible toilet on site, as well as a small breakout room which can be used as a quiet space to relax and decompress. In the building you will also find Explore library as well as a community café. Hand gel and anti-bacterial wipes will be on hand around the building and practitioners and volunteers will be wearing a mask or visor at all times. The building has a large, free car park to the front and back and is also on major bus routes from York city centre and surrounding villages.
