Clifford Allotment Holders Association has taken on some of the work and responsibility for the allotments from the Parish Council. There are four formal meetings of the Association each year, the A.G.M. being held in March.  A committee voted in by the Allotment Holders meets more frequently to discuss issues and take action for the benefit of its members.  A few social events are arranged each year on the allotment. The Association is a member of the National Society of Allotment and Leisure Gardens Ltd [N.S.A.L.G.].  There are currently vacancies, which are advertised in Outlook, please contact  Jane Davies   This email address is being protected from spambots.

Clifford is blessed with a very polished Drama Group which puts on two plays every year in the Village Hall.
They run a very effective Patron scheme which allows patrons to attend all productions free. They also get to attend a wide variety of other functions put on by the Group, such as the annual BBQ, theatre visits, etc.
As with most drama clubs they are always eager to attract more members to act on stage, present or produce plays or help with all the other things needed behind the scenes.
If you're interested call 530652 for a chat, email secretary @ clifforddramagroup.org.uk (without the spces) or look at the facebook page.

Keep an eye on OUTLOOK and the News and Events page for other upcoming events.

Ladies of all ages are welcome to join this group of around 50 who meet monthly. We listen to speakers, go on outings and enjoy the friendship of like-minded women.  Meetings are at Clifford Village Hall at 7pm for 7.30 and outings are during the day.

The group is keen to welcome new members to take part in tracing the history of our village.  We also submit comments on planning applications which potentially affect historical features in the village.  We meet regularly through the year with a public presentation, usually in the autumn, on aspects of the history of Clifford open to all residents. This is held in  the  Village Hall  and  will be  publicised in  Outlook.   During the centenary years of World War 1 we will be researching the lives of the servicemen listed on our village war memorial. We are writing an article about each one in the month in which they died.

You are invited to “come dancing” with us on Wednesday evenings. Our Club,  “Tamara Two-Steppers”, is a small but very friendly round dance club with 24 members. We dance in the Methodist School Room, Church View Mews, Clifford on the second and fourth Wednesday evenings each month from about 7.00pm. We have been dancing in Clifford for some four or five years, before which we danced in Bramham Village Hall.  The club was formed in 1999 at East Ardsley and we moved shortly after that to Bramham.

Round dancing is best described as “choreographed ballroom dancing” where the instructions (Cues) are given by a cuer so that all the floor are doing the same steps at the same time.
This is intended for those who have never danced before or have done very little dancing as well as experienced dancers who wish to try something a little different.

If you are interested in joining us then please ring  Tony on 0113 2100896 as soon as possible.  If there are sufficient numbers then additional evenings will be arranged. Please bring a partner if possible!!
Come along and have fun!!   Learn to enjoy life again!!.

Boston Spa Men's Forum is a friendly, informal organisation for men  from Boston Spa and the surrounding area. We meet at Clifford Village Hall on Wednesday mornings to chat with friends and neighbours, to have a tea or coffee and then listen to the week's talk from an invited guest speaker. The topics cover a wide range of interests and are often accompanied with a slide show.
Guests and new members are always welcome to come to any of our weekly meetings. Why not call in and say hello to neighbours and new friends - share a smile and a joke - listen to one of our talks? If you like the experience, then you are welcome to join us and become a member.
