Introducing The Singing Teapot (singing for the brain)
The Singing Teapot is a social and singing group for people living with dementia and their carers, run by Keighley Rotary Club and Dementia Friendly Keighley. It meets on the first Friday of each month, from 1.30 pm to 3.00 pm at Keighley Healthy Living, 13 Scott Street.
Chriss Issott, the newest member of the Rotary Club, will undertake a sponsored walk on 25th March of 52km (i.e. a year's walking at 1km per week!); he aims to raise enough money to fund the Singing Teapot for the coming year and has set a target of Â£500.
A new walking route
We have been very fortunate to benefit from the expertise of Allan Friswell, (who has devised walks for the Silsden Strollers) and produced a scenic walk around the highways and bi-ways of Keighley. This five mile stroll is called the Rotary Ramble 2016. We hope to have an inaugural walk later in the year, then repeat it each year as an organised social date for the calendar. If you would like to have a go, then please download and print off the maps and instructions. There is a choice of starting places, all easily accessible by car or bus. The route is clearly marked with distinctive yellow markers. The walk includes the Worth valley, hidden footpaths, follows the Keighley and Worth valley railway route, and goes through Oakworth, where "˜The Railway Children"™ was filmed. The views along the way are stunning. Further details will be available once we have set the date of our autumn Rotary Ramble, but the route is open to the public at any time from now.
Be part of a global network of volunteers, trying to make the world a better place. Please also see the 'links & news' page for information from the local district and live feeds from Rotary International and Rotary International in GB&I.
