Next Full-Day Walk

Details of the 2019 Walks will be available soon.

Suggestions for walks and offers to lead are always welcome. If you can help, please contact Alison Rutter on 01904 703430 (walks@yant.org.uk) or Eileen Wishart (Secretary) on 01904 633705 (eileen.wishart@btinternet.com).

Please park with consideration where roadside/village parking is involved.


NB. Walkers participate at their own risk and must be capable of completing the distance in open countryside over uneven ground, with some ascents and descents, in a variety of weather conditions. Suitable clothing and footwear must be worn and a packed lunch and drinks carried.


If you would like a lift for any walk or can offer one to others, please contact Colin Sherwood (trips@yant.org.uk).


Social Evening and Quiz Night

Another very pleasant evening was enjoyed by all, on the 16 March, at the New Earswick Bowls Club. Roger and Alison teased our brains with a variety of questions and the Bowls Club fortified us with a tasty and varied buffet.


Social Evening 2019.

The New Earswick Bowls Club on Huntington Road has been booked for Friday, 15th March 2019.

Full details and a booking form will be enclosed with the December Newsletter.



2019 walks – leaders needed.

Many thanks are due to those who plan and lead the walks, which we all enjoy. Some of these folk have led more than one walk per year for a while. It would be good if more people could come forward with suggestions for venues and offers to plan and lead walks. Help with recces would be available.


We shall soon be putting together next year’s programme; if you can help please let any sub-committee member know.


Half-Day Circular Walks

Walkers use their own transport for these walks

and usually have lunch together after the walk at a local hostelry.

An administration charge of £1.00 will be collected on each walk.

Thursday, 28th December, 2018.

Eileen Wishart will lead a local walk. Details will be in December’s Newsletter.



Full-Day Walks with coach transport and afternoon tea.
