YOUNG AT HEART: 200th Member

The Young at Heart Club (Shay Stadium), a group for over 50 years of age members, which was formed by the Calderdale Community Coaching Trust, (the community arm of Halifax RLFC ) in 2011, welcomed its 200 member, in December 2015.

The group has steadily and consistently grown with members engaging in a mixture of activities, which include Wii games, New age Kurling, table tennis, indoor bowls and darts, along with a range of table top games and regular day trips are a feature too.

The group runs every Thursday at the Shay Stadium from 2pm to 4pm and admission is just £3 with as much tea/coffee, buns and biscuits as you can consume and there is also a small transport budget to help people with mobility difficulties.
