Win family ticket to East Riddlesden Hall


East Riddlesden Hall has donated a fabulous prize to the accessthedales chairty day on 8th June.  It is an opportunity to win a family ticket.

East Riddlesden Hall

17th-century manor house with romantic, intimate gardens

For generations, the East Riddlesden Hall estate was a hive of farming activity; producing enough milk, cheese and bread to adequately supply the household and its workers.

Today, our friendly room guides bring the house to life and share the fascinating stories that have made this special place an award-winning visitor attraction. Going into the Hall feels like walking through someone’s home; it has a cosy lived-in feel, and creates a relaxing atmosphere where visitors can feel at ease examining the exquisite embroideries and blackwork, oak furniture and pewter.

Fun at the Country Harvest, Ingleton 8th June supporting accessthedales


 

Alex practices Five Element Acupuncture, an ancient form of acupuncture originating from China. It relies on working with the patient to understand the natural rhythms of the body which from time to time become unbalanced, causing illness and pain. By gently manipulating these rhythms with acupuncture treatment the aim is to restore a natural healthy state.

His practice has clinics offering acupuncture in York and Harrogate and upholds the following

philosophy:

  • Relax  time out of your day solely for you
  • Heal  bring balance to your body, mind and spirit
  • Enjoy  look forward to your treatment and enjoy the time we spend together

Poet Ian Parks supports accessthedales


Thank you to Ian Parks who has donated a signed copy  of  Versions of the North’  to accessthedales’s  for the Charity Day on 8th June at

Country Harvest Ingleton

Thank you to Ian Parks, for donating  a signed copy of  his new book,’ Versions of the North’

Ian Parks has just edited ‘Versions of the North’ published by Five Leaves. It is, as Ian points out in the interview, the first poetry anthology to come out of Yorkshire for nearly thirty years. Born and bred in the Midlands, I am guilty of only considering the obvious, when it comes to poets who have emerged from ‘up North’.

The anthology was enlightening and a delightful read, because I was able to easily engage with the poetry. This does not mean that the poetry is simplistic; far from it. Every word counts and each word is used in a way that must be savoured.
