AUTUMN leaves are beginning to fall in Ilkley and this weekend families of all ages can spot leaves of a more unusual type at Nell Bank Activity Centre on Denton Road.

Sarah Thomas, Chair of Ilkley Arts said: “To coincide with the Art Trail, we are delighted to be working in partnership with Nell Bank to create a wonderful weekend of art and fun at the centre. Over 30 artists have created interesting and amazing leaves of all imaginable shapes, sizes and materials that can be searched for on a special discovery trail at Nell Bank. The leaves will then be donated to Nell Bank for children to enjoy for months to come."

Dan Goodey, Centre Manager added: "Open from 11am to 4pm this Saturday, October 7 and from 11am to 3pm on Sunday, we have an exciting weekend of activities for all the family to enjoy. The range of "leaf themed" artwork will be located around the beautiful Nell Bank site and alongside the Leaf Trail there will be the usual fun for children including the Adventure Playground, Water Play and other activities around the grounds. A nominal charge of £2 will be made per person, with children under five going free. All proceeds will go to the two charities – Nell Bank and Ilkley Arts."
