The Mid-Yorkshire Golf Club is to the east side of the village.This is a top class club with an extensive club house and function suite for events.
Joe and Gail Jenkins and their family have run the village shop for a good few years now and have become friends and providers to the village, not only modernising and superbly stocking the shop itself, but helping with almost every village project by promoting, delivering, donating and lending manpower. Their help and friendliness is of huge value to many in the village.
