Leven Walking Club
Leven Walking Club is a long established club, and over the years, members suggestions have resulted in a varied programme of walks on the Yorkshire Wolds, North York Moors and around East Yorkshire etc, ranging from easy field paths and country lanes, to more advanced rough moorland and forest treks, and from 5 miles to 10 miles in length.
Walks are undertaken summer and winter, and Wednesday evenings usually finds club members on an 'evening stroll', starting at village pubs in East Yorkshire.
You can follow their progress from your armchair, as "Nomad" writes regular reports on club activities in the Leven Life Magazine, or you could take the bull by the horns and join them, experiencing the great English countryside for yourself.
For more details about the club and their activities, check their website (here). The site contains three detailed 'Trans-Dales' routes, plus a comprehensive programme of walks planned for the year.

Leven & Brandesburton Horticultural Society
Established in 1941, the Leven & Brandesburton Horticultural Society hold an annual 'Summer Show' in August (3rd Saturday) plus other events throughout the year.
Hundreds of people across Leven & Brandesburton - and beyond - work hard throughout the year preparing to demonstrate their skills and commitment at the Summer Show, entries in recent years have exceeded 700.
And it's not just about vegetables, plants or flowers; those of you with skills in art, crafts, photography and cookery will find plenty of opportunity to show off your skills.
The committee, show stewards and helpers are always ready to assist those for whom it is the first time at showing and it's generally an enjoyable day for all concerned. A word of warning, however, competing in the village show can be addictive!
The Society welcomes new members who would like to help in any way with organising the Show or other events, or wish to help sponsor the running costs of the Show.
For further information about the Society and the Show contact our Secretaries Mark Gillyon (01964 542 867) or Margaret Cundill (01964 543 203), schedules are also regularly placed in both village Post Offices and local garden centres.
Leven Allotments Society
According to records, there has been an allotment site in the village since at least 1977, having been designated as an allotment by the then Parish Council. Over the years it has been improved and expanded, and to date there are some 36 plots all of which are currently worked by Leven residents.
Recently, three more plots of land have been acquired at the rear of Abbeyfield on Beverley Road, these are also let to residents of the village.
Currently there is a waiting list for these allotments, which by the way we have been commended by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council as one of the best in the County. If any residents would like to add their names to the already long waiting list they should contact David on 01964 544 621
The current Chairman is David Heald, the Secretary is Ian McPherson and the Treasurer is Linda Wilson.
