Home-Funfishers Out of School Club and Playgroup
FUNFISHERS EXTENSION PETITION
From Monday 23rd July 2018 here at Funfishers we will be updating our fee structures, the increases in fees have been unavoidable this year due to the large increase in our running costs that we have to budget for throughout the year, Rate, Rent, Food, National living wage, pensions etc. This is the first increase across all our clubs since 2007 so to be able to continue to provide good quality childcare that is still affordable.
Funfishers has recently had a planning application for a much needed extension turned down by City of York Council and will appeal the decision. The architect has created a building that whilst sympathetic to the design of the original school is fit for the 21st Century and how our children learn and play.
The extension and refurbishment will give:
Sadly in a very close vote some local Councillors felt the new design wasn’t sympathetic enough to the original architecture of the school and they won the day. However We, along withFishergate School, York Civic Trust, York Conservation Area Advisory Panel, Councillor Dave Taylor and Robert Goodwill MP- to name but a few- feel, unlike them, that the public good for our childrenoutweighs personal taste.
This appeal is our chance to turn that decision around for the good of our community and children.
Please sign the petition that available at Funfishers, Fishergate School desk or online at: www.ipetitions.com/petition/funfishers-extension-appeal
