Here’s a quick news round-up for the Illingworth and Bradshaw Neighbourhood Scheme (correct at time of publishing: February 2012 – for the latest information be sure to visit LA Group’s website below).
The group is now called LA Group – short for Local Activity Group.
They have their own website: www.illingworthandbradshaw.btck.co.uk
You can also contact LA Group via their own email address, which is LAGroup50@hotmail.co.uk
The spring programme is out now! Click here to view the programme. The programme includes keep fit, bridge for beginners, crafty club, Tai Chi and painting class, with plans for computer classes, bowling and other new things in 2012. The classes cost from £1 to £2.50 per week and are friendly, informal and open to all – a warm welcome is guaranteed.
The group have adopted a constitution and a committee is in place, so they are really starting to take over the running of these activities, organising themselves, producing their own publicity, applying for funds with the help of Voluntary Action Calderdale and more.
They are now discussing holding a launch event – again watch this space for further details.
