Real Food Ilkley Market-postponed with revised date to be confirmed

The November Real Food Ilkley market on Sunday 1st November has been cancelled due to high winds forecast- new date to be announced.

Opening times are 10am to 3pm

Changes have been put in place to ensure everyone’s safety with volunteers on hand to ensure physical distancing, stalls more spaced out and signs displayed reminding everyone to keep safe. Bradford Council’s Emergency Planning Dept have given RFI the all clear to continue until further notice.

Sadly, one of the great features of the market, sampling, won’t be currently permitted and card payments are strongly encouraged. If the market starts to get busy, customers will be asked to wait outside the area until it is safe to enter.

walks and community projects. You can support the charity by becoming members.

Ilkley Clean River Group

An informal Ilkley-based group, lobbying to achieve clean and safe water in the River Wharfe-m now, not tomorrow. 

They commented “We have proven to the relevant bodies (Environment Agency; Defra; Yorkshire Water etc) that the water
is not safe or clean and we want them to act to clean it up. We have the support of Ilkley Town Council,
Bradford Council, our MP, thousands of local residents and many others. We recognise it is a big and complex task
and impacts on many different parts of our town, particularly when it is sunny and many people come to the river
to enjoy it. Please come along and support us!”

Ilkley Civic Society

The organisation exists to promote high standards of planning and architecture, raise public awareness of Ilkley’s history, geography, natural history, architecture and conservation, and improvement of features of historic or public interest.
