Harrogate Town Competition

Oatlands Junior (8)Harrogate Town Community Foundation launched a competition call 'Active October' all of the children in Harrogate were challenged to be as active as possible throughout the month of October. The Grizzly Bears ran, cycled, walked, swam, played lots of matches in many different sports and some even had gymnastic classes most nights after school. After all of this hard work, the Grizzly Bears class found out they had WON the October Active Challenge out of all schools in Harrogate. As part of their prize, 4 first team Harrogate Town players and the infamous Harry Gator came to join the class for a football session in school. The session was thoroughly enjoyed by all! Thank you to the Grizzly Bears for all of their hard work and for the Harrogate Town Community Foundation for running the competition.
