Junior Striders end of season 2018 returning 25.04.19

Junior Striders season 2018 has now finished. Thanks to all the children and parents for your support throughout what has been our fourteenth and probably best year. Jon again has worked wonders to combine serious exercise with games and fun. Son Josh has been a tower of strength, along with Mel, Gaye, Paul Grinstead, Paul Goodlass, Trevor, Jo, Vicky and others. We wish Josh well as he begins a new life chapter at York University. Looking ahead to 2019: please pencil in Thursday, 25 April, for our first juniors of next year (2019).
