At the Crown Hotel in Harrogate 70 Striders/Spinners in all there finery turned up to eat drink and merry and they certainly were. The excellent food was followed by loads of energetic dancing. For the Striders Katie Gray won a raffle prize and Andy Robinson was crowned King of party hats,at least 10 which stayed on his head all night.
Thanks to Ali for all the arranging, job well done.
