Bee a happy and healthy skipper at Cliffe Castle – Keighley News

EVEN beekeepers are joining in with Keighley Healthy Living's campaign to get the town skipping.

A member of Airedale Bee Keepers joined in the filming of the charity's latest video designed to encourage people to take up the healthy exercise.

The film shoot was at Cliffe Castle, and the museum's mascot Bracewell the Dragon and members of Cliffe Castle Support Group also joined in the fun.

The Support Group handed KHL a donation to help pay for rope for new skipping ropes, to go with handles being created by members of the Lion's Den Men's Shed social group at Cliffe Castle.

Skipping ropes are being given out all summer as part of KHL's lockdown resource kits for local families.

Support Group spokesman Elaine Cooper said: "We want to encourage people of all ages to skip at Cliffe Castle as its a beautiful place to practice with a long rope as a team, individually with shorter ropes; while running or walking or on the spot."

KHL was inspired to make it skipping videos by Shirley Holmes, aged 83, who was sharing her daily exercise routine that included skipping.

A KHL spokesman said funding for the ropes had come from various organisations including Keighley Town Council.

She added: "We linked with schools to send an instructor to teach skipping and give out ropes.

"With offers of donations we are planning to continue giving out ropes through the summer, continue making them at the Lions's Den, and start again teaching skipping in skipping in schools in September."
