The group was set up in 2011 as part of Calderdale Council's Neighbourhood Schemes.  Its aim is to offer people, primarily in the 50+ age group within the community of Illingworth and Bradshaw and surrounding areas, a range of activities and classes to help promote their health and well-being. 

Membership for anyone joining the group from the AGM (September 18th 2018) the cost is £3 which runs until the 31st March 2019 when renewal of membership will be £5.  

For any person joining the group from the 1st January 2019 membership will again be £5 but that will run until the 31st March 2020.  The cost of each session is advertised on the Programme of Activities.

When a non-member of the LA Group wishes to try an already well established activity such as Art, Craft, Keep Fit, Kurling, Line Dancing they may do so for one session, free of charge, but if they do not join the LA Group by paying the subscription, then attendance at subsequent activities will be charged at 50 pence above the advertised charge.  When the LA Group is starting a new activity as a Taster Session this rule does not apply and everyone has to pay the advertised cost.

The next Committee Meeting is on Thursday, 7th February 2019 at 12.15 pm at Illingworth Moor Methodist Church.
