It is essential NYCC allow SELFA the continued use of the Ings school premises

As most of the community are aware, SELFA are a local charity who provide amazing support for many children and their families.

One of the many great services that SELFA provides to the community are Holiday Workshops, so when the schools are on holiday, a wide variety of activities are delivered each day to keep our children occupied and smiling. This allows parents and carers time to go to work or provide some respite. 

To help SELFA deliver these Holiday Workshops, they have relied on the wonderful facilities offered by the premises at Ings School and they hope to continue to use the building despite the unfortunate and disappointing decision by North Yorkshire County Council to close the school itself.

Despite SELFA's continuous attempts to obtain conformation from the Council if they can still use the premises during the school holidays, there has been no definitive answer and the concerns of appropriate and suitable location for the Holiday Workshops are growing and time is now running our for the organisation to arrange anything for the ever nearing Easter Holidays.

Therefore as a parent who values the great work and support SELFA provides to myself and many other families and children in the local community, I felt it would be beneficial to collectively approach North Yorkshire County Council for an answer, so we can get this resolved as soon as possible to enable SELFA to plan for their wonderful Holiday Workshops for many of the children within our community.

While SELFA provide a great support and service to our community, I feel it is only right and fair that this time as a community, we do everything we can to support them, as it is crucial organisations like this are here for us all and keep growing not just the smiles for our kids, but for all the families as well.
