We currently meet every Tuesday and the second Saturday of every month, carrying out practical tasks on 10 different nature reserves in the Lower Aire Valley which are managed in a partnership between Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and Leeds City Council. We are a really dedicated and varied group and are working hard to improve these spaces for wildlife and people alike. We are always looking for new, local members so please contact (07825 668 419) for further details.

At Kippax Welfare we have a memorial day on May Bank Holiday Sunday. A team of Under 30's plays a team of Over 30's which as you can imagine can be very entertaining. This memorial was introduced to remember one of Kippax welfare's Open Age players, Mr Phil Whiteside. It has now grown as a memorial to include  other Kippax Rugby players, committee members and club members, including Robert Shackleton, John Henshaw,  Adrian Waters, Ian Battye, Graham Britten, Joe Armitage and Lyndsey Rudge.

Kippax Sports and Social Club is a charitable organisation, which without the support of its many volunteers and the kind sponsorship of local businesses, would be unable to continue and thus none of the above would be possible.
