Otley has many clubs and community groups that are run by local people for local people that seek to serve the interests of residents. Listed are some of the many groups available. Please note the list is not comprehensive of all groups and Otley Town Council do not take responsibility for any omissions.

Links for external organisations do change and whilst we do check the links at regular intervals it is possible that a link will not work because the organisation has changed its web address or the club or group is no longer operational.  If you do find a broken link we would appreciate it if you would notify us using the  contact form.  Thank you.
