The group is predominantly a younger generation of women, but welcomes all ages. The ladies come from a variety of backgrounds and professions, and from quite a large catchment area including Knaresborough and Wetherby as well as Harrogate. All members will agree that they would like to experience new things, learn new skills and meet new people.

The programme aims to include a variety of activities to suit all interests and levels of ability.

Each member has different talents and specialities, which we would like to be shared and encouraged at our meetings. And as members, the girls will not only develop their knowledge but will also build new friendships.

Where we meet

Spa Sweethearts meet on the second Thursday of each month from 7.30pm for approximately two hours, although there is no strict chucking-out time so members are welcome to stay as long as they’d like to. We meet at Christ Church on the Stray, Church Square, Harrogate, HG1 4SW.
