Mount Carmel, Silsden, celebrate Yorkshire Day!

8th August 2017

Mount Carmel, Silsden, celebrate Yorkshire Day!

August 1st saw the recently formed  Mount Carmel First Tuesday's Friendship Club celebrate Yorkshire Day in style with comic dialect verse, poetry, jokes, brass band music and singing!!

There was a lot of laughter and everyone enjoyed Yorkshire parkin, Wensleydale cheese scones and fat rascals - plus their Yorkshire themed raffle winnings! One of the more disabled attendees who had come with her carer said, 'I have really really enjoyed myself today!' And she meant it too!

Their next meeting will be on Tuesday September 5th at 1.30pm where people will learn about seated exercises and try a few moves...

If you are interested in coming along then please contact the Embrace Coordinator on: 07540047973

The group is another initiative started off by the Embrace project for older people in the Keighley and Skipton Deanery.
