6th Birthday Celebrations

Club News
For those not on FB Hi all Don’t forget this weekend’s Striders 6th birthday virtual challenge (see previous announcement) and please post those selfies too. In addition we’re also going to host a virtual Zoom ‘party’ this Saturday 30th  (7pm start). Please ‘drop in’ if you can and raise a glass for our 6th birthday. The idea is to also have a virtual quiz during the ‘party’ too. Nothing overly competitive but who knows those much sought after Striders (not so exclusive) pens could well be on offer! The link to Saturday’s Zoom birthday event and more details on the quiz will follow. Good luck with the weekend birthday run/walk challenge, remember 6 is the magic number. Hope to ‘see you’ on Saturday via Zoom and as always stay safe…
