Hello there!

We are a friendly group of people who enjoy walking and outdoor activities.

How do I meet the Group?

You can just turn up on an event, but it best to contact the events organiser or one of the committee members identified as contacts on the front cover.

Is there a membership fee?

Yes, but you are welcome to try a few events before being asked to join. The subscription is currently £8 per year and we offer a 50% reduction if you are a student or unwaged. You can download a membership form (Look in 'More' and then 'Files').

Do I also need to be a member of national YHA?

No, we are a affiliated YHA group, but if you want to go on a weekend away, you need to be a member of the Leeds YHA Walking Group.

How do I get to events?

We encourage car sharing. Use the website to say you are going and the message boardto ask for lifts. Or phone walk leader.

Who runs Leeds YHA Walking Group?

An elected committee co-ordinates the group’s activities which are then run by individual members. All members are actively encouraged to organise events.
