New Era Underway at the Yorkshire Society

The Yorkshire Society, the organisation which focuses on promoting all that is great about Yorkshire locally, nationally and internationally, is celebrating a new era with a redesigned logo, website and executive management.

Keith Madeley, the society’s Chairman said “We have developed some exciting plans that will certainly put Yorkshire on the national and international map.

“Everything the society does is not for profit, but for Yorkshire and we are working with some of the county’s top companies, charities and local authorities to ensure our ambitions for Yorkshire and the people who live and work here are realised.”

A recent restructuring has seen businessman Philip Bell and former bank manager Andy Chaffer join Keith in managing the society, under the presidency of Lord St Oswald and patronage of HRH The Duke of York.

A calendar of social and business events, awards and prize givings, not to mention Yorkshire Day’s civic celebrations and more will be keeping the society and its membership busy throughout the year.

Membership of the society is open to any individual or business. Those interested can support the society for free or become a member for as little as £20. Full details can be found at
