Established in 2005, the centre is run by Haxby & Wigginton Youth & Community Association (registered charity no. 1105675) provides a wide range of educational and leisure activities for local people in Haxby, Wigginton and York. As well as hosting community groups, local businesses and local services, a very active group of volunteers organise weekly activities for the benefit of local people of all ages. These include running the popular Tuesday Pop Inn Cafe for the elderly, computer and internet tuition on Mondays and Thursdays and regular provision of refreshments for adult classes.

Postcode Neighbourhood Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Our organisation received £17,680 from the Trust to enable us to work towards securing the future of Haxby & Wigginton Youth & Community Association and Oaken Grove Community Centre following the COVID-19 pandemic.
