People in York Urged to Renew Their York Card

York Council 010513

11:36am 16th May 2013

Residents in York can get a fright at York Dungeon, go for a cut price swim at Yearsley or Energise and come face-to-face with Vikings at the Jorvic Centre – all for less with a York Card.

The current York Card will be available for renewal from today and cost just £3. The card also doubles up as a library card, which allows residents to borrow books, audiobooks, DVDs, CDs, large print books and language courses.

Residents on disability living allowance, carers allowance, housing benefit, council tax support, employment support allowance widowed parents allowance or working tax credit will be able to get the card for free for the first time this year. A letter from the awarding body will be needed.

Cllr Sonja Crisp, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Culture and Tourism, said: “The York card gives residents a chance to try out some of the many great attractions that are on their doorstep for less, with over £30 of savings to be made. This year York Chocolate Story have offered a third off ticket prices on Sundays, adding to the great savings already on offer.

“Residents can even gain free admission to the Castle Museum and the Yorkshire Museum with the card, providing great, free family days out!”

To apply for a York Card go to any York library. Please bring proof of identity and York residency.
