On July 26th the first of Ilkley and District Good Neighbour’s “Gentleman Only” excursions on board the “Endeavour” Canal Boat cruising along the Leeds-Liverpool canal will take place.

The cruise, which is operated by Skipton & Craven Action for Disability, travels from Skipton towards Gargrave or Kildwick and back. Travelling at a relaxing canal speed of less than 4 miles per hour, the tranquillity of the canal is a tonic for everyone. We are looking forward to some time enjoying the wildlife and the pretty scenery as we experience the peaceful world of the canal.

We hold regular social events throughout the year, some of which are free. The aim of these social events is to give older residents the opportunity to get out of their homes and to interact with other people.

If you would like to be considered for future social events, or know of someone who may benefit, either drop us an email from our contact page or contact us by phone on 01943 603348 leaving your name and telephone number and our scheme coordinator will be in touch.
