Over 90s Party



This is Good Neighbours oldest scheme. Each year in September we organise a party for all our over 90s citizens who live in Addingham, Burley in Wharfedale, Ilkley or Menston. The party is held in the Clarke Foley Centre, Cunliffe Road, Ilkley.  We collect people either from their own homes, residential care homes or respite care homes using Ilkley Community Transport's accessible minibuses.  For those who are less mobile we provide transport for a partner or escort to assist with their needs and ensure they feel comfortable and safe.


Fantastic news for the 2018 Over 90s Party!


We have been sponsored by the Co-op Communities Fund for over £2,800 towards our next year’s party. We are thrilled to have been recipients of this latest draft of funding, which will secure our party for September 2018.


Members of the Co-op donate one per cent of what they spend on selected own-brand products and services which, together with money from shopping bag sales, helps to fund local projects like ours. Since September 2016 the Co-op has raised more than £20 million for community projects.



Nearly a hundred guests attended our recent party for the Over 90s on Saturday 30September at the Clarke Foley Centre, Ilkley. The party was first held in 1994 and is unique in that it is the only event in the Bradford district dedicated to residents aged 90 and over. Once again free entertainment and afternoon tea were served to guests from Addingham, Burley-in-Wharfedale, Ilkley and Menston. They were well looked after by volunteers from many local community groups and young people from Ilkley Grammar School and Wharfedale Air Cadets. A lovely afternoon was had by all!
