Cononley Sports Club

Sport in Cononley has been played for over a hundred years, originally the different sports kept themselves as independent units but in 1961 the different sections came together and formed what is now known as Cononley Sports Club.

Cononley Sports club now run two senior and two junior cricket teams, two senior football teams and a table tennis team, we are keen to run a junior (under 14/15) football team but require parents to get involved to be able to do this.
Anyone wishing to help with running a junior football team please contact Don Bell 635197 for details.

The club now boasts the best facilities in the area, this includes a
Function room / bar / kitchen which will cater for up to 80 people and is available for hire for private parties, christenings etc. The club committee use this room to organise social evenings by hiring entertainment or a disco to raise funds to purchase both ‘ground’ and ‘sports’ equipment. Please watch the village notice board for events. Anyone wanting details about the room hire or enquiring about playing sport, please contact Charles Calvert.

We have a small but very active committee, anyone who feels they could contribute to the running of the club either on the sports side or the social side would be very welcome. Committee meetings are on the first Monday in the month at 7.30pm in the clubhouse.

Cross Hills Naturalists’ Society

was formed in 1904 by seventeen gentlemen of Cross Hills and the surrounding villages in the Aire valley to hold regular meetings and enjoy excursions into the local countryside, with an aim to improve their knowledge of Natural History.

These aims are continued today with the following activities:-

Winter Lecture programme – members are able to hear well qualified speakers, sometimes from some distance away, giving talks on a variety of subjects such as Marine Biology, Plant Life, Ornithology, Archaeology, Mammals and Environmental issues.

Field Meetings – are held in the summer months when studies are made in the local area, or places of natural history interest further afield. Themes covered on these visits are archaeological, botanical, ornithological and sometimes conservation and restoration work is undertaken.

Microscope Group – the group meets once a month throughout the year to examine material which members take to the meeting using binocular microscopes. Sometimes an outdoor meeting is arranged in the summer.
