‘Made in MK’ Awards 2016
York House Centre were delighted to be nominated and then short-listed for the ‘Best Community Project’ category at the inaugural ‘Made in MK’ awards organised by OneMK.
Jill Taylor (Trustee) and Fiona Trinder (Centre Manager) attended the awards ceremony at the Mercure Parkside Hotel in Woughton on the Green. We had a fantastic time – sadly York House Centre didn’t win our award but congratulations to The Black Sheep Collective (Bar Bar Black Sheep in Wolverton) who did, they also took the overall award. Congratulations also to our friends at MK Biergarten, Virtual Orchard and Hornes Brewery who all took awards home.

York House was happy to be a major player in the Phoenix Painting Project, being the venue for dozens of families to come and add colour and characters to Jonny Boatfield‘s creation. Sadly, not enough money was raised to cover all the costs, so if you are minded to chip in a few quid then go to http://kate8787.wixsite.com/phoenixproject.
So far the residents of Stony Stratford and Stony Stratford Business Association have helped raised part of the funds to help finance this project. However more money is needed for completion, if you could donate to this project – it could make all the difference! Donations are being accepted at the Sweet Shop and Card Shop in the recently re-opened Stratford Arcade also at Odells Ironmongers on the High Street.
