Who are GALBA?

​GALBA’s supporters come from all over West Yorkshire and beyond, from all sorts of backgrounds and from across the political spectrum. Every member of GALBA brings something different - including legal and technical skills, campaigning and mobilising, fundraising and door-knocking. We are undaunted in our determination to stop Leeds Bradford Airport's irresponsible expansion plans.

Our committee members all live in West Yorkshire.

Our 2024 committee is made up of: Nick Hodgkinson, Chair; Ian Coatman, Secretary; Pauline Bailey, Treasurer; Jess Fowle, Membership Secretary. Other committee members are Nicky Ford, Victoria Smith, Manny McKenzie, Mike McGrath, Helen Pickering, Chris Foren and Andy Tait.

No one is paid for their time in GALBA’s campaign and everyone on the committee is acting in a personal capacity, not as a representative of any other organisation.

We are only as strong as our membership - we hope you will join us

We are only as strong as our membership.  If you would like to join GALBA, you will find we are a very friendly and welcoming bunch of people.

There are all sorts of activities to get involved in: from letter-writing, leaflet-delivering and banner-making to fundraising, engaging with other campaign groups, promoting our campaign on social media and talking to your friends and family about why Leeds Bradford Airport is big enough already.
