FILM; Another Mother's Son (2017)

Thu, 05 Apr 2018 13:00

Over 50`s All Welcome

£3.50 with refreshments

The film is based on the true story of Louisa Gould, the drama is set during World War II on the Nazi-occupied island of Jersey. Lou took in an escaped Russian POW and hid him over the war's course. The tension mounts as it becomes clear that Churchill will not risk an assault to recapture the British soil, and the island-community spirit begins to fray under pressures of hunger, occupation and divided loyalty. Against this backdrop, Lou fights to preserve her family's sense of humanity and to protect the Russian boy as if he was her own.

The Time of Their Lives (2017)

Room 1, £3.50 with refreshments

12A, 1h 44min, Comedy, 5.8/10

A former Hollywood star enlists the help of a new friend in order to journey from London to France for her ex-lover's funeral, with the various mishaps en route making the trip unforgettable.

The two women have very different personalities and very different hearts. One is nice, helpful but carries a burden in her heart. The other is a selfish and manipulative woman who will use everyone around her. Different things happen to them, and it's refreshing to have a reminder that nice things happen to nice people. The scenery is nice and the weather is beautiful too. There are many things to like about this film. It is worth a watch.

Stars: Joan Collins, Pauline Collins, Franco Nero

TOUR DE YORKSHIRE POP-UP GUIDED WALK

Fri, 04 May 2018 13:00

When Baildon Walkers are Welcome produced their Four Walks leaflet a few years ago, they did not know that one of the routes which passes the Cow and Calf Rocks, would be the obvious route from Baildon to reach the point where stage 2 of the Men's race will finish! As you can imagine all roads to the Cow and Calf Rocks will be blocked for hours beforehand. A walk over the moor will be the crowd free way to see this great spectacle as well as enjoying some great views of Wharfedale.
Join Bob Davidson and Paul Robinson for our walk which will leave the Potted Meat Stick in the middle of Baildon at 1.00pm, aiming to reach the Cow and Calf rocks in good time to find a place to watch the finish of the men's stage which will be just before 18.00.
We usually aim on our walks to get everyone back to Baildon as a group. Realistically there are going to be thousands of people at the Cow and Calf Rocks for this event and we will not be able to stay together. We will make sure everyone has details of how to get down into Ilkley and get trains back to Baildon. Expect very crowded trains.

The whole walk into Ilkley is about 8 miles with 225 metres of ascent. The route leaves Baildon via Sconce, Fairweather Grange and Little London, before crossing Hawksworth Moor and Burley Moor to reach the rocks. The whole walk into Ilkley takes about 4 hours but on crowded pavements, the last part down to the town may be slow. Paths are mostly good but sturdy footwear is recommended as there are sections which are uneven and rocky.
There is a café at the Cow and Calf Rocks and a pub. There are likely to be other stalls. We advise bringing drinks and having some food with you. Please bring waterproofs – forecast at the moment for Friday is Ok but the week's weather is changeable.

As our contribution to Tour de Yorkshire festivities, we will be giving a copy of our Four Walks Leaflet to everyone who joins us for this walk.
