Get healthy and have a blast this January!
We’ve got everything you need to get your 2018 off to a cracking start right here in Skipton.
If you’re thinking of making some changes to your lifestyle then we’ve got a couple of great events to give you a taste of a new way of living. There’s also some excellent cultural events to get excited about too!
U3A: The Raikeswood Camp German POWs’ experiences, Swadford Centre
Wednesdays 17th January to 14th March/1:30pm-3:30pm
Most of our locals are familiar with the Raikeswood POW camp, it was a camp used to imprison German soldiers during the First World War. In the last few years, with the help of various archaeological societies and the University of Leeds, we’ve been able to deconstruct just what life was like for those POWs, this half term course aims to educate us even further with the aid of diaries written by the POWs themselves.
Knotweed: How It Can Affect Your Home, Keighley Town Hall
5th January/6pm CANCELLED
A growing concern for homeowners across Britain, Japanese knotweed has the capability of growing through walls and even dismantling small structures like garden sheds. Unlike other weeds, it’s an offence to dispose of this plant in conventional methods, this talk from trained specialists in Japanese knotweed treatment will bring you up to speed. Teas and coffees will be provided to those that attend this free event.
