Social connections are as important as money and health, according to a major new study. So, how do you find out what is going on in the Harrogate district? Well, of course, you can explore this website! There are links to all sorts of groups, organisations and sources of information. For example, have you ever looked at the Harrogate and Ripon Centres for Voluntary Service (HARCVS) events webpages? Alternatively you could always visit your local library for ideas about recreational and educational events.
