Some events must be booked and paid for in advance. For all others, booking is not essential but it is highly recommended to guarantee your place. Your safety and enjoyment are very important to us and we therefore have to adhere to guidelines on group numbers. Unfortunately this means that we might have to turn people away but we ask that you respect the decision of the event leader.
Payment is required at the time of booking and can be made by debit/credit card over the phone. If this is not possible cheque or cash is acceptable (please do not send cash through the post). Cheques should be made payable to 'Harrogate Borough Council'. Bookings will not be confirmed until payment is received.
Please note that bookings are non-refundable unless the event is cancelled by the AONB.
Great care has been taken to organise these events but sometimes circumstances beyond our control, such as bad weather or leader illness, may lead to a cancellation. Every effort will be made to contact people that have booked but for all events we recommend that you contact us to check it is still going ahead. We reserve the right to postpone or cancel any events.
It is essential that you come dressed/equipped accordingly for the event and the weather conditions. The weather can be very different on higher ground so please come prepared. Event leaders can only accept participants who are prepared for the conditions. Always bring:
