Thursday Club

Age UK have reorganised their social activities as a result of the pandemic, and Thursday Club will not be held in Rathmell for the foreseeable future. Meetings and lunches are now held in Settle.

More details from Age UK North Craven on 01729 823066.

We always enjoy welcoming new people, either to become full members of the club, or those of you who would just like to come along to see what we do and have a ‘Taster visit’. 

Outings to local pubs and restaurants, plus other activities, are regularly arranged.

The Rathmell Thursday Club was part of Age UK North Craven’s club network, which helps to offer social activities for people in the community to meet and enjoy the company of their friends – & make new ones!

If you are interested in joining the club contact Richard Daniels, who is the Age UK appointed worker/leader for the club based at Settle (01729 823066) or

In Rathmell itself, Rosemary Rees is a good point of contact to find out more about the erstwhile Rathmell Thursday Club (01729 840507)




Rathmell’s Fallen 1914 – 1918


At the meeting on 6th November Margaret Brenchley gave a presentation commemorating “Rathmell’s Fallen” of the 1914-1918 War.

It was very moving to see photos of the men who some of us only knew as names on the Rathmell Village memorial – others recalled family relationships and connections. Margaret also showed us pictures of the cemeteries each man was buried in,  all still kept in beautiful condition by The Commission for War Graves.

John Harrison thanked Margaret for her excellent presentation which gave us an insight into the impact of the Great War on local lives 100 years ago.

With further thanks to Margaret we have been able to display the pictures she discovered in the course of her research. They are on the notice board in Rathmell Reading Room.
