Seasons Greetings from FoYW

FPT North Wall stone labels 17112014The Friends of York Walls wish “Seasons Greetings” to all our Members, Volunteers, Friends and Supporters.

Why not give someone in your life a Unique Christmas Gift and help the Friends of York Walls to raise funds to promote York’s City Walls and to refurbish and open Fishergate Postern Tower.

You can now on-line  Sponsor a Stone for £20 (or more) on the new North Wall  or the existing West Wall.  Ideal as a gift for someone, or for a significant event or person in your life. The scheme can be used to observe a special occasion such as a birthday, a christening, a wedding, as a memorial or simply just to convey a message.

Don’t forget also our book published earlier in 2014 – “A Walking Guide to York’s City Walls”  by Simon Mattam would make an ideal Christmas present. Available at local York outlets + online suppliers. ISBN 9 780092 900205
