A walking group exists in the village of Bishop Burton known as BB Ramblers. Are you interested in joining a new social walking group for village members – open to men and women? If so, please contact Jo Beckett on jo.thebirches@btinternet.com providing your name and contact details.

The group started in the Summer of 2019 and its walks so far have been a short walk round Kilnwick Percy Hall park and a long walk to Londesbrough and Goodmanham starting in Market Weighton. The programme is a mix of long and short walks, on different days of the week at roughly fortnightly intervals.

Note: If anyone is running a group in the Village that is not included but wishes it to be please contact the Village Hall Treasurer on 551315
