Welcome to Skipton Friendship Group

We are a community group for over 50s, either those on their own or in couples, who would like to join with like-minded others to take part in a range of activities. A number of these activities can be accessed by public transport, and lifts may be available, but there is no denying that a car would help accessibility.

To view our Information Sheet for Prospective Members, click here.

The group has been in existence since 1998 and is part of the nationwide Federation of Friendship Groups: go to http://www.fcfed.com.  Our current Membership stands just over 50. Despite our name it is not just for people living in Skipton: currently we have members living in West Yorkshire and Lancashire as well as North Yorkshire.

Please Note: at times it may be necessary for us to operate a waiting list.  If this happens we would tell you and then let you know once we had places available again. 

What do we do?

We have a three monthly Programme with a wide variety of activities. 

Click on this link to view the one intended for the period April to June (inc).

Unfortunately the current Covid-19 situation has meant that all our activities have been cancelled and  the Programme suspended but it will be resumed as soon as possible.

In the meantime thank you for your interest in the Skipton Friendship Group; please feel free to ring our Membership Secretary on: 01756 792454 for further information.
