Ryedale Forum 50+ is an independent registered charity formed to promote the Health and Wellbeing of Older People in the Ryedale area. It is totally self-supporting and receives no core funding from any external source.

Membership is free and is open to all residents of Ryedale over the age of 50.

We act as a channel for communication between those providing services and those using them. We organise events and activities to satisfy the interests and needs of people in the 50+ age group.


Our activities include:

  • Formal meetings and consultations with officers of various public bodies

  • The Forum Footsteppers Walking Group

  • Gentle Exercise/Keep Fit Classes

  • Yoga for older people

  • Coffee mornings with interesting speakers

  • Lunch Club

  • An extensive programme of visits to places of interest including theatres

  • Holidays

  • A Gardening Club


Members are free to take part in any Forum activity which interests them. You will always be made welcome.


We advise booking early for outings as numbers may be restricted.


A full programme of events, outings, meetings and healthy activities, including walks, is sent to all members quarterly. This includes news and booking forms.

We are proud to be members of RYEDALE CHARITIES TOGETHER.

We are a registered charity, number 1121417.

We look forward to seeing you at our next event!
