NCT Bradford and Airedale branch is launching a regular ‘Bumps and Babies’ group for new and expectant mums and dads, whether it’s their first, second or fifth baby! The group will run every Tuesday 11.30-13.00 at the Scout HQ starting 24th September and all parents are welcome to join.
A relaxed and informal get-together with enough room for buggies, babies and parents. It is a great place for parents and parents-to-be to make new friends, share tips and chat with those going through the same things.
A fun, friendly and informal group run by volunteers.
The group is held every Tuesday (including holidays) from 11.30am to 1.00pm.

In 1844 Dr. Joseph Fawthrop L.S.A. was living in The Square. The triangular plot of land bounded by High St., Chapel St. and Albert Road used to be called Dr Moor (where Moor St .gets its name) and The Square was situated in this area. Dr Fawthrop was said to be the first resident doctor in the village.
THE ISOLATION HOSPITAL
The hospital on Long Lane, now divided into dwellings known as The Balcony, was built in the days when infectious diseases were still a major medical problem. On 24th June, 1882, a deputation was sent to meet John Foster and son to see about buying a field in Long Lane for such a hospital, but it was unsuccessful. In April, 1893, however, the same people agreed to buy land from George Ambler for £280 and a hospital with about 20 beds was built by the Local Board and opened the same year.
Queensbury had three distinct names; up to 1702 it was known as CAUSE-WAY-END (Causeway End): then in 1702 it was re-named QUEENSHEAD, after the coaching inn in the reign of Queen Anne; and then in 1863 it was renamed QUEENSBURY.
