Gwiddle Club York is a friendly place to meet and develop your coding and tech skills or learn something new. We run informal sessions where young people from 7-17 and families can come along and work on projects, develop new skills, participate in challenges, whatever you want. We’re here to provide guidance, encouragement & support in a relaxed environment. 
 
You can work on an existing project, learn something new, show us your cool coding projects or just see what’s going on. 
We're absolutely delighted to announce that Gwiddle Club York is receiving much needed improvements over the Summer. Due to IT problems at our previous space where we were experiencing a reduced number of devices, we have been looking for new spaces for Gwiddle Club York. 
 
In partnership with our friends at Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust, Gwiddle Club York is moving to Folk Hall in New Earswick! With thanks to new funding from the Keeping Digital Foundation to improve services across York, we're acquiring laptops to help enable these digital making activities without the need for an IT suite. 
 
The new space is much more relaxed and more than double the size! It also features a larger car park and has frequent bus connections. 
 
Even more exciting, we're improving the frequency of these Gwiddle Clubs from bi-monthly to fortnightly
 
We cannot wait to see you all again in September. We're also glad to announce that our partners at Digital Friendly York are running free coding sessions in Acomb whilst we look to expand our services into parts of York that currently don't benefit from this offering (like New Earswick).

York CoderDojo recently rebranded as Gwiddle Club York! As part of the Keeping Digital Foundation's relaunch of Gwiddle, we are building a new and improved network of digital making activities. 
 
We're still be the same great team with the same amazing volunteers, and not much has changed with the projects and great experiences young people have at our services. 
 
The only real change you will notice at our services is our name. Our name has changed to help make it easier for people to find their local, free digital making activity across North Yorkshire! All of our activities will continue to be bookable on My Keeping Digital.
