Welcome to the Broadrake self-help group page. Information about meetings in 2024 is given below.

Meetings are scheduled for the following dates, normally 2nd Weds from Sept-June months, with a summer break. Please note that there may be changes to the meeting dates due to workshops or overnight bunkbarn bookings, but we will amend the dates if necessary.

  • 10th Jan 2024
  • 7th/21st Feb 2024, tbc
  • 20th March 2024

The venue is Broadrake, Chapel-le-Dale, Ingleton, N.Yorks, LA6 3AX in the Yorkshire Dales. Directions on the website

The sessions will run from 9.45 am-ish to 3 pm-ish; we make a small charge(£5 max.) for heating costs during winter months and a willow charge will be worked out according to costs. Bring your own tools if you have them, although there will be spare secateurs and I'm happy to share other tools. Tea, coffee & biscuits/home-baking provisions are available, but please bring your own lunch.

This self-help group stems from those who have attended previous willowy workshops at Broadrake and want to improve their skills or find new willow challenges to work through together. We will be happy to see anyone from NBG who maybe lives in the more southern parts of the North!

If you would like to be involved or wish to join this group, please email the group coordinator (contact details below), who will be happy to help.
