French For Fidgets
French for Fidgets classes take place at Christchurch on a Friday afternoon at 2:00pm during school term times. Classes are run by a native speaker and include wonderful puppets, games, songs, French snacks, stories and craft. We always welcome parents with children aged 2-5 to come along for a taster class to see the special Fidgets method in action.
Research shows that children who start learning a language at a young age are much better at picking up accents accurately and they can learn new words amazingly quickly. Learning a foreign language also actually makes you better at English grammar and gives you a real head start in life. Why not join us and find out how fun and rewarding language learning really can be?

Ilkley Yoga Club
Ilkley Yoga Club resumes on Thursday 05 January 2012 and will meet each Thursday until the end of March. We then take two weeks break and resume on 19 April 2012. We look forward to seeing existing members and welcome new people including beginners. There is no joining fee, so if you are looking for a friendly group of likeminded people, do come along. The Riddings Hall is pleasant and spacious so there will be room!
We meet on Thursday evenings in Riddings Hall from 7:30 - 9:00pm. We practise Hathe yoga which consists of a wide range of postures involving stretching, balances and breathing exercises. These benefit the whole body and help to focus the mind. Yoga is harmony of body, mind and spirit. It can be practised by anyone of any faith or none. It can increase and maintain flexibility and strength, improve balance, and as it is performed thoughtfully and slowly, it is also relaxing. Whether you are a complete beginner or already have some knowledge, you will be welcome.
You will need to bring a mat or rug for floor work, and wear comfortable clothing including something to keep you warm during relaxation at the end of the class. Do not eat too much just before a class or you will find it difficult.
We meet weekly during school term time. Classes are £6 each. There is no membership fee for joining.

La Lèche League
Olicana Historical Society
Rhythm Time offers fun, educational music lessons for babies and toddlers and are held at Christchurch on Wednesday mornings.
Babies are innately musical. They can absorb sounds from before they are born. Music engages all areas of the brain, and therefore can benefit babies in ways such as: memory, concentration and recall; speech and language development; internalising rhythm and pattern; personal response to music; enhancing social interaction; fine and gross motor skills, balance and coordination.
Rhythm Time classes are fundamental in creating a climate where these skills can be learned and developed.
A large part of the baby class is about bonding and sharing music activities together. In the toddler class these skills are continued, as well as encouraging independence, confidence and creativity.
The classes are fast-paced and well-structured, and last for 30 minutes which is the maximum time a child of this age can concentrate for.
Baby classes start from birth, where we do lots of activities to help with the early development of your baby through music. These include songs, rhymes, listening skills, exploration of percussion instruments, eye tracking, exercise and relaxation.
They move to the toddler class around 15 months, where they explore more fully musical concepts in a fun way, encouraging coordination, confidence, pitch and rhythm. The adult stays with the child, as we encourage lots of interaction between child and parent.
Baby class Wednesday 10:00am.
Toddler classes Wednesday 10:40am and 11:20am.

Wharfedale Beekeepers' Association
Wharfedale Festival Of Performing Arts
Based in Ilkley, the Society has as its recording area the whole of Wharfedale, Littondale and the valley of the Washburn. With over 500 members, the Society runs winter lectures, carries out conservation work, advises landowners on conservation management, manages its own reserves and arranges walks and visits to sites of natural history interest. Strongly committed to conservation of the local natural heritage, the Society has been maintaining natural history records within its area since its inception. This lengthy run of data assists in monitoring wildlife sites, and providing credible comment and criticism where development is proposed.
The winter evening illustrated talks are very popular. They cover a wide range of subjects from geology to marine life and botany to conservation. While many deal with topics of local concern, others range across the globe. During the summer the recorders, and guest specialists, lead numerous walks to explore our area. These are attended by large numbers of friendly and helpful members who are happy to welcome new faces and to share their own knowledge. Walks may have wild flower, geological, fungus foray or birdwatching themes.
