Silsden Youth & Community Centre are ready to officially open the Youth & Community Centre on 10th December at 11am.

Peter Robinson, Silsden Mayor will be opening the centre, with 2 special guest stars, Elsa & Olaf from Frozen.

We will have various activities for the kids to enjoy and of course it wouldn’t be the same without Santa, so we have a grotto too.

The Great Wall of Silsden

As we all know by now, the work on the walls which were damaged over last winters floods are now expected to take up to April 2017 to complete.

Will we have walls to protect the road and Fields to Silsden Sports Club? The Golf driving range?
