About

Originally founded as a walking group in 1994 by Patsy Johnson, Chapeltown 50 Plus Club has evolved in to a club which runs many activities. We organise walks of differing expertise mainly in South Yorskhire, West Yorkshire and the Peak District, trips, holidays and occasional social events to name but a few. 

Should you wish to know more about any of our clubs, then please contact us and we will respond to your enquiry. Should you wish to join one of our clubs, then please visit us at Newton Hall on the 2nd Monday of each month. Our meetings start at 10:30am. We have one rule – that you must be over 50!

 

Walking Group Rules

We are an informal group with only a few simple rules:

  • Public transport is used wherever possible
  • There is no membership and therefore no subscriptions or membership fees.
  • We simply publicises a diary of events 
  • Our club accept no liability of any sort for any adverse incident occurring on a group outing

Want to walk with us?

If you would like to accompany us on any of our walks, please use the Contact Form in the first instance and provide us with your contact details. We will then get in touch and really hope to see you on a walk soon.

What to bring

If attending a walk please bring proper walking boots, a waterproof jacket and enough food and water for the distance to be covered. In poor weather we also advise you bring waterproof trousers, hat and gloves and a change of warm clothing for afterwards. In exceptionally sunny conditions, a sun hat, sunglasses, sun screen and additional water are advisable. Other than that, just be sure to bring some beer money!
