A Friendly Club which loves Fell Running.

Wharfedale Harriers came into being in 1998 and was initially formed to bring together people with an interest in off road running, mainly Fell Running. Since then, however, the club has expanded to include the delights of Cross Country and the dizzy speeds of Road Running. We are a friendly club and welcome applications for membership from all ages and abilities. We also have a thriving junior section. Our modest fees are set at a level where we look to merely cover our expenses. On Wednesdays, we have a pub/social run, where members can run together and then have a chat before returning home. For details of membership and training, please see the separate pages. If you think that you would like to join us, why not come along to one of our pub runs and see what you think. The details of the next one are usually on the web site. Details of fees and a membership application form are also on the website.

Yorkshire Cat Rescue

Yorkshire Cat Rescue is registered with the Charity Commissioners for England and Wales and is registered charity number 1160138 (formerly 1058218).

The charity exists to save the lives of abandoned and unwanted cats and kittens in Yorkshire and parts of Lancashire. It offers a rehoming service for such cats and accommodates them at its purpose-built centre near Keighley.

All the cats in our care are neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and given any other medical and behavioural treatment required before rehoming. We have a no-kill policy (unless recommended by vets due to quality of life). This means that we sometimes get chronically ill cats (or kittens) that can still lead a very good life (pretty much equal to any healthy cat) but have to have long-term medication and/or treatment. Any cat in our care will be cared for until we find him or her a home.

Yorkshire Cat Rescue was previously known as Haworth Cat Rescue. It has a rehoming centre based at Cross Roads between Keighley and Haworth, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom.

The charity’s aims are to relieve the suffering of cats who are in need of care and attention and, in particular, to provide or maintain rescue homes or other facilities for the reception and care of such unwanted animals and their treatment.
