Tuesday 1-3pm

This is a social group for parents that encourages friendship and exercise. We go walking in the local area as well as into the countryside. We walk and chat and sometimes take a picnic, parents said they come back to school feeling relaxed and refreshed. We work alongside Street Life Bradford who part funded us to take eight families to Haworth youth hostel on a residential, they have also funded some walking boots for parents.

“I had a really nice time, visited some lovely places and enjoyed the walks a lot.”

“I really enjoyed the walks. It was therapeutic, taking in the clean country air and mixing with others.”
