Want to lead a walk?

We've got space in the diary for some more walks, so we're looking for volunteers to lead walks.

For more upcoming events, see the walk diary and the Facebook page for all social events.

We are very sorry to hear that Cath Milligan (née Guest) has passed away after a brave and determined 2-year battle against cancer.

Cath joined GYBO in 2003 and worked tirelessly for the group for many years until her move to Scotland in 2011. For a great many members, their first introduction to the group was the website that Cath single-handedly set up and maintained, and the second was meeting Cath herself on a walk or at a social, with her beaming smile, broad Yorkshire sense of humour and her endless words of encouragement, always keeping an eye on the newbies and making sure they were OK.

It is thanks to Cath that so many of us found the group so welcoming and wanted to keep coming back, giving us the thriving group that we enjoy today. The courage with she faced her illness was supreme, she never bowed to it and continued to climb Munros and to run in races whenever her health allowed her to, often confounding doctors with her ability to keep going, and she has been an inspiration to everyone who knew her.

Cath will be much missed by everyone whose lives she touched, and our thoughts and prayers are with her husband Kenny and the rest of her family.

Welcome to GYBO!
