On the 8th January, Your Back Yard organised and facilitated a meditation session session with 8 over 50s from Armley Mosque. It’s the first of a number of sessions we’ll be running with this group, although anyone aged over 50 is welcome!
Everyone here at Your Back Yard hopes that you had a great Christmas and are feeling refreshed and ready for 2019! We think that this will be a great year for us as we have lots of exciting projects coming up that we can’t wait to share with you.
We ran a free indoor bowls taster session at the John Charles Centre as part of our programme of free healthy living events for over 50s. We played games of 2 vs. 2 for about 2 hours, and everyone seemed to really enjoy it!
In October 2018 Tony met with the Friends of Brackenhill Park group to discuss the work Your Back Yard did with Wibsey Park in 2017/18, with the view of running similar events in Brackenhill Park next summer.
12 lads from the OWLS Lads Lunch joined Tony from Your Back Yard and a volunteer from OWLS in a walking football session held at the Carnegie Stadium’s indoor sports hall. The session was part of our ongoing programme of events for over 50s in the LS6 area, which you can read about here.
