The Trustees are pleased to report a grant award to The Friends of New Earswick Pool.
The Friends of New Earswick Pool (FoNESP) are a registered charity (1188111) who formed in October 2017, in response to the news that the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust planned to close the New Earswick Pool. After a successful campaign FoNESP took over the running of the Pool in January 2019. They now hire out the pool to a range of swimming schools and clubs, including the local primary school, parent and toddler, scuba diving and swimming schools.
The pool has a unique history, having been opened in 1966 by the Rowntree Trust with the support of local community, notably children being asked to donate ‘Half a Crown’ and the villagers joining a ‘Buy a Brick’ scheme. As part of the Garden Village scheme, it was built to enhance the health and well being of the local community.
Today the pool is used seven days a week by many diverse groups of swimmers, including the New Earswick Disabled Swimming Club and the longstanding New Earswick Swimming Club. Our aim now is to improve the fabric of the building and continue to run the pool as a sustainable and popular venue.

The Trustees are pleased to report a further grant award to SASH.
SASH is a youth homelessness charity that works across York, North and East Yorkshire.
They help young people aged 16-25 who are facing homelessness.
SASH do not run a hostel or own any property. The accommodation they offer is through our Nightstop and Supported Lodgings services, which rely on volunteer ‘hosts’ who offer a spare room in their own home. The services are as much about supporting young people to resolve the problems which have led to them becoming homeless as they are about putting a roof over their head. Part of this support is provided through the SASH Active programme.
Those they support are referred to them by Local Authorities and other partner agencies.
