Calderdale Heritage Walks Summer Programme 2019

 

 

The summer programme has fortnightly walks plus extra ones including Bank Holiday Mondays.
No pre-booking required, just turn up and pay the Guide – its £3 (all ages).

Almost all starting points are served by public transport. Well behaved dogs on leads are allowed on walks unless indicated by the No Dogs symbol.

There are still a few walks from the Winter Programme with the next on;

Sunday 3 March – The North Side of Elland.

Elland goes back to at least 1086 yet in 1760 much of the land was open land. In the century that followed, the arrival of canal, railway, new roads, industry and more housing changed things radically.
Meet Ian Philp at 1:30pm by St. Mary’s Parish Church, HX5 0BW for the latest Calderdale Heritage Walk.

Keep an eye on the Facebook page to see any late alterations.

The complete Summer Walks Programme as shown below can be downloaded here.

Pellon High Five Winter Newsletter and Timetable of Activities

Pellon High Five has published the Winter 2019 newsletter, which can be downloaded  here.

Thanks to Jenny Garner for preparing the Christmas Quiz. This year’s Christmas party was voted a resounding success and the food was delicious.

2019 Membership renewal is due now. Happily once again, no membership fee but please make sure you complete the form (available from your tutor) with your up-to-date details. Pass them to the committee and they will be passed onto Angela, the Membership Secretary. Please put on which class/es you attend otherwise there is difficulty uniting you with your membership cards.

In March High Five will be 8 years old! The AGM has been arranged for Friday 29 March, 2:00pm at Highgate. It’s later this year so that the Treasurer can present a more accurate full year’s accounts for the financial year-end in February. A plea here once again for new Committee members. High Five can only keep going if  there is an active Committee. If you can’t join, maybe you know someone else who would?

Below is shown the timetable of activities as at October 2018.

Using our Chi ballsRun by Pellon High Five 50+ Community Group, every shape and size is right for these classes, it doesn’t matter how much, or how little, you can do. High Five caters for different levels of fitness and laugh with each other sometimes at our inability to master some moves! Most people will admit to being nervous about going to a “Keep Fit” class, so if you’re worried about coming to your first class on your own, call to arrange for someone to meet you as you arrive. All our new members say what a friendly bunch of folk they are and how welcome they were made. So what are you waiting for? Your first class is free & subsequent classes £3.

Exercise does so many brilliant things for your body & brain. If doctors could put it in pill form & bottle it we would all be rushing to get a prescription. How about a new year’s resolution to spend less time on the settee & more moving.

High Five Pilates
Pilates can be gentle for those who have injuries but strenuous for those who need a challenge. Our clinical Pilates classes cost £3 for an hour session. Again your first class is free. You will strengthen the muscles that support your body. These muscles could also help to reduce wear & tear on joints & keep them functioning. Good posture is important in helping to reduce back pain.

The classes do not run every week so please email before going.

More information can be found by calling 07960 736937 or for pilates, gentle exercise and Scottish dancing from the tutor Sue Watson on 07964 713927 or email pellonhighfive@gmail.com or visit the website at www.pellonhighfivehub.wordpress.
