Leaf Clearance in Micklegate

Dear residents,

We are now at that time of year when not only do some members of the public throw litter everywhere, but Mother Nature joins in, in the form of leaves!

City of York Council (CYC) is already putting their plans into action, based on the work carried out in previous years.

CYC will commence their leaf clearance programme on Monday the 26th of October, and this is scheduled to take place for approximate six.

They will be using a combination of trailer drawn leaf vacuums, our large mechanical sweepers and manual means.

The leaf vacs and manual work will be targeted at removing leaves from pavements and grass verges.

During this six week period the two large mechanical sweepers will be targeted at leaf removal from the roadways, using the local knowledge of CYC staff, members and calls/contact from residents, as to where and when.

There is some minor leaf fall at the moment, but by employing the above methods they will expect a swift response when they really start to come down.

As always CYC cannot see every street at one time, so would be grateful for the following

  1. If you aware of leaves that are causing a danger i.e. on a major footpath and wet and slippery, please telephone the Customer Contact Centre on 551551, if not a danger please monitor and we will get there!
  2. Once the main leaf fall is over, if there are leaves, which appear to have been missed, please pass these through the Customer Contact Centre.

Thank you very much!

Hear the York to Calais Convoy story

At the end of September, a group of students from York took a lorry packed with donations from local people to the ‘Jungle’ camp in Calais. York People’s Assembly are hosting a public meeting for them to share what they saw during their visit, and to discuss future practical and political action for refugees.

7.30pm, Wednesday 4th November at Friends Meeting House, Friargate

When they first announced the trip in August, York People’s Assembly invited the group to their planning meeting, and offered to host a meeting with them when they came back. The response was overwhelming, and it took 10 hours just to sort the donations, before loading them up. As well as taking their donations to the group distributing supplies in the camps, they also visited those stuck in the camps.

They’ll be telling the story of the trip, what they saw and learnt. As well as time for questions, YPA will be discussing how we continue to respond. There will be a collection, with everything minus the venue hire cost going to projects working with the refugees. Please tell your friends about this event (See Facebook)
