With assistance from Richmondshire District Council, we at Yorebridge Sport & Leisure have put together a survey to find out more about sporting demand and interest in fitness and leisure activities in our area. This will enable us to evaluate the services we provide to help us meet the needs and interests of both gym users and current non users,

The survey is made up of only 10 questions, and should only take a few minutes of your time to fill in. Please help us to help you - the survey can be completed here online using your computer, smartphone or tablet.

If you prefer, you can print out the survey here, and once completed the form can be dropped off at:

  • Yorebridge Sport & Leisure Centre
  • Askrigg Village Shop
  • Cornmill Tea Room, Bainbridge
  • Hawes Community Office

What a great night we all had at the Italian Film and Food Night! Thanks to the huge effort by all involved, a fantastic sum of £1,200 was raised for Yorebridge Sports Development Association - thank you all for your support.

Then we held the Family Fun Day which went really well, and we were lucky with the weather too. We were delighted to be able to offer free entry to all, and we hope all of you who came managed to have a look around the Centre and see the improvements we have made recently - especially the toilet and shower refurbishment. We had some VIP guests come along and although never intended as a fundraiser we managed to raise £190 from raffle sales.

Many of you support or Air Ambulance Clothes Collection, and we are always amazed at how many bags of clothes we manage to assemble - this raised an amazing £114 for us and the sam amount for the Air Ambulance Charity. Thank you all.
