[Image taken 10.7.21] Bishopthorpe Road, York. Southlands Methodist Church ( Happening on these was a welcome surprise. The email exchange with the Church in July 2019 had given me the impression it was not going to happen. I'd found out there was ward funding the Church could apply for but there was no response to my email with that information or asking to meet in situ. (NB getting to the racks is not straightforward and there is an unavoidable step at the gate at the front of the church - visible in streetview.) But I believe racks send a message that is relevant here: All welcome. Plus the About Us page says: "Southlands methodist actively seek to live out our faith in daily life. To that end we seek to make choices that both protect others from injustice, and promote a better standard of living." Which enabling people to cycle to its premises undoubtedly does. Southlands is a venue for arts events including the annual York Open Studios (, Planet Cafe - a pay what you feel cafe, and meeting places for many community groups. The several planters of varying sizes contain herbs to which you can help yourself. A lovely idea. (I've tagged this 'nevergiveup' as the emails I received and the subsequent silence gave the impression my request for cycle parking could be filed under 'never going to happen'/'over my dead body'.)
