in Holmfirth

In Holmfirth we run the ‘Holmfirth Project Group’, ‘Holmfirth Big Meal’ and a Zumba group (seated exercise). Here is information on each. The Project and Big Meal groups effectively operate as one, with the same members and volunteers attending both.

Holmfirth ‘Big Meal’

On the last Friday of each month we meet for a hot 2 course lunch cooked and served at the Methodist church hall (Crown Bottom car park) in Holmfirth, followed by ‘Mary’s mad raffle’. Transport can be provided on request by one of our team of lovely volunteers.  There are often 30 to 40 members who come together for the ‘Big Meal’, so you will not be alone for long and will soon feel as if you’ve known us all for years!

When: Last Friday of the month.

Where: Holmfirth Methodist Church Hall

Time: 11.45 until 2pm.

Cost : £9 with transport, £7 without transport.

Holmfirth Project Group

This group meets on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month. We plan a range of activities to suit our members’ interests, including arts and crafts, quizzes, guest speakers and presentations. We share a light lunch (usually soup, sandwiches and a pud or cakes) and teas and coffees are also served by our volunteers. At least once a year we also plan a trip out somewhere using a fully accessible coach, and link with local schools on occasion on shared projects.

When: 1st and 3rd Friday of the month.

Where: Holmfirth Methodist Church Hall

Time: 11.00 am until 2.00 pm.

Cost: £8 with transport, £6 without transport

Armchair Zumba

Exercise to music (seated or on your feet!) led by an experienced, qualified instructor. One of our regular exercisers, Audrey, said of it, “We have soft balls to squeeze in our hands and maracas to shake to the Spanish music. We use our arms in all different ways, also our feet and legs. Stretching does our muscles good. We all feel much healthier afterwards.” A great bond of friendship and fun is built between all who attend. 

When: the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month (from 27.2.20) but there will be no session on 9th July 2020.

Where: Holmfirth Methodist Church Hall

Time: 1.30pm to 3.00pm

Cost: £4 + £1 for transport
