A new ancillary group, the MYFG Craven Foraying Group , has been inaugurated by Archie McAdam, principally to cater for the needs of members at the western edge of our "territory" (Skipton and beyond), who may find it rather difficult to attend events in the central area (however, it should be emphasized that all MYFG members are welcome to attend events organised by the Craven Group!) The group is still evolving at the moment: details of the first two events are included in the current event schedules, and those of others will be included as they become available. All events will take place on the first Wednesday of each month (including December) and will run from 10.00 AM to 12 noon. For further details, please contact Archie on 01756 793359 or helenandarchie@helenandarchie.f9.co.uk


Our calendar of events for 2017 is now available:

(Please note that these lists are complete and (hopefully) correct as at 22/04/17. However, the details for some events are not finalised. When the list is updated, this will be noted here: please check back periodically.)
