Activity 6 – Historic sports

The healthy side of history

Call it a Gala Day, call it a local fete, call it a ”Sports Day”; the idea of an activity with the potential to bring out the whole village to come together in the fresh air of a warm early summer day is particularly enticing.

Engaging all our local sports clubs, and built around a core of historic sporting activity – be it tug-‘o-war, grass track cycle racing, or our local equivalent of the Dales “Fell Run” – we intend to create a new sort of Village Day.   Building towards a first event in 2018, we hope to create an enduring event which will link health, heritage and history.

We are definitely looking for volunteers for this one!   If you are interested in getting involved with this work, please visit our volunteer page.
