I can… the damp and cold weather was a slap in the face yesterday reminding me to get the winter clothes out! But alas, today surprises with some sunshine on our doorstep and clear blue Yorkshire skies.
And the turn in weather means that one of my favorite holidays is around the corner…. Bonfire Night!
Bonfire Night Returns!
We are pleased to announce that we are putting the plans in place to bring back a favorite Ilkley tradition: Bonfire Night! As always, we will be open to the public for a bonfire, reverie, drinks, pies and peas all capped off by a Fireworks display. Mark your calendars for Friday the 5th of November for the big celebration. More details to come.
CALLING ON OUR MEMBERS
We are in need of firewood, so please bring it down to the Club and let Head of Grounds Richard Lord know and we will add it to our collection.
We will also need volunteers on the evening as parking marshals, Club ambassadors and drink servers to help manage the event. Please email your interest to Nicola at email@example.com
In the News
A big thanks to some of our Members and Head of Fitness Marcus Whitehead for the quotes and contributions to a feature article about our Fitness Centre that appeared yesterday in the T&A. If you missed it, check out the web version.
Thanks for Your Support
The Club has recently hosted two different charitable events that have raised money for great causes and supported our local Ilkley Community.
A pub quiz was held by Yorkshire Cancer Research in SERVE raising over £1500. We also had a Self-Defense Course open to Members and Non-Members and sent all the proceeds to Refuge Against Domestic Violence. A big thank you to Sensei Patrick Walton and Marcus Whitehead for organizing.
