Sherburn Aero Club is renowned for having some of the best facilities in the country, as well as a very active social programme that is the hub of village life. There are also many other popular clubs and societies in the village, including Sherburn Bears rugby league and Sherburn White Rose football. Golfers will find a choice of challenging courses to the north, at Scarthingwell and Cocksford Golf Clubs, and there is a popular local angling club at Bacon Factory Pond. Garforth Leisure Centre and Kippax Leisure Centre are both just a short drive away, and offer a wide variety of facilities, including pools. Nearby Leeds and York both offer a wide variety of days out and evening entertainment, including theatres, cinemas and sports facilities, with York’s tourist attractions drawing in 7million visitors per year.
Like many traditional English villages, Sherburn in Elmet has its own schools, which are the centre of community life. In fact, it goes one better than most, with a choice of two primary schools. Children at Saxon Gardens can choose between Sherburn Huntgate Community Primary or Athelstan Community Primary, both of which are within easy reach of the development and both of which boast ‘Good’ ratings in their recent OFSTED reports.
Sherburn in Elmet has a good selection of shops in the village centre, including a Boots store. There is also a traditional market in the village every Wednesday and Saturday.
