                                                                                                     11.00am; but earlier (e.g. 10.00 or 10.30)                                  when an outing is planned. These are listed in our parish bulletin.


Activities to date have been  Gentle exercises - ‘Extend’ – with a trainer funded by Bradford Community Fund.  Outings (walking, shopping and eating) - Ilkley, Otley, Skipton, Addingham (the Lion Inn), Lavender Farm ….. So far we have had enough transport to accommodate everyone who wants to come, but please let us know in advance if joining us for the first time on an outing date.


Eating! – we usually prepare a hot meal every other ‘at home’ meeting, with a small charge of £2 -£3 to help build up funds. We have successfully bid for a grant of £500 from the Community Fund to help with furnishings and kitchen equipment.


Future developments.

We are open to any (feasible!) suggestions for future activities

and trips and remember you are always welcome to come and

join us.


For further information please see the Parish Bulletin for

meeting dates.
