YUMI brings people and Cultures Together

York Unifying Multicultural Initiatives – is a voluntary, intercultural network.  We provide opportunities for people who have come to live in York to meet with the local community, make friends, develop confidence and feel valued members of York community.  We’re open to everyone so that means YOU!! We support people with different cultural roots, languages and walks of life to share skills, learn from each other, celebrate traditions.

A few photos from the riverside stroll and international picnic today with United Bikes and friends from York Mosque & Islamic Centre to mark Refugee Week. What a great time we had!!

Thanks to all who came, helped out, shared their food and got in the spirit of things trying out some very nice bikes from Get Cycling - Events.

Thanks to Africa's Gift for donating the brilliant Wonderbag. The recipe for the delicious bathe-bathu soup from Lesotho made by Michael Fletcher, using spinach from the YUMI garden, will be up on the website soon.

Here’s to many more picnics at the beautiful YUMI Community Garden this summer... there’s no better place to get to know your neighbours while sharing seriously tasty food.

So much going on at this year's Millennium Fair, where do we start?

There's going to be exciting historical re-enactments. Live music to make your heart sing. Breath taking Brazilan martial arts. Scythe demonstrations from our friends at St Nicks. Great community groups talking about what they do in the neighbourhood and how we have worked together to produce Fishergate Footprints like Friends of Danesmead Wood Friends of York Cemetery

There is a tonne of kids stuff happening too; face painting, crafts, exploring, hook-a-duck, a coconut shy and more...

And a Dog Show! Don't forget to bring your four-legged friends too!
