OUR MUCH RESPECTED PATRON ANGIE McALL SENT US THIS MESSAGE TODAYSATURDAY 21ST AUGUST 2021 – THANK YOU ANGIE FOR YOUR WISHES AND YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT.

Welcome back. We can now see a light at the end of what has been a long and dark tunnel. This will be the first of many wonderful sharing experiences aimed at bringing some colour back into our lives and an opportunity to rekindle companionships with like minded people.

Thanks to the patience and determination of our officers and many helpers we can now celebrate the new phase of The York Art Society.

Have a wonderful day and Happy and safe painting to you all.

As you will already be aware we are restarting some of the activities of The York Art Society with two venues for Self Help Groups. Group 1 at St Andrews Bishopthorpe and Group 2 at Heworth Rugby Club.

Group 1 (St Andrews Bishopthorpe) starts on Saturday 21st August at 10.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m.

Group 2 (Heworth Rugby Club) starts on Tuesday 7th September at 10.00 a.m. till 2.00 p.m.

You might have missed the many notices about this restart programme and what is going to happen for the rest of this year? If this is the case here are our intentions.

Full subscriptions remain suspended until April 1st, 2022. Up to this date the only official activity of the society will be the Self Help restart groups for which there is a fee of £20. There will be no additional costs to this, but payment must be received by 1st August 2021.

It is hoped that the full activities of the society can be restarted from 1st April 2022, but this is entirely dependent of sufficient volunteers willing to run these activities being available.

Well at least we are back with the first ‘restart’ venue which was one of the self help groups at St. Andrews. All masked up and socially distanced! Thanks have to go to all who have steadfastly worked to the goal of the restart programme. It was enjoyed by all!!!
