Brief history of FOYW:

The Friends of York Walls was formed in early 2011 by a group of five of York’s residents who felt that “The Walls” needed more support and promotion. The “friends” now number over 600, and in November 2014 the Friends of York Walls Community Group became a registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation  =  Friends of York Walls CIO – Charity Number 1159300

How it is organised:

Friends of York Walls CIO is governed by a group of Trustees. Only the Board of Trustees have full voting rights at any AGM or EGM.  Operations are run by a Management Committee + Sub-committees and Task Groups.  All are volunteers.  The Management Committee meets monthly, The Trustees meet every three months, and an “Annual Friends Meeting” is held every March. Registered members are referred to as the “Friends of York Walls”. For more detail please go to ‘about us’ from ‘about’ in the menu/list across the top of the home page of the website.
