Massive “KUDOS” is due to the parents and volunteers, who continue to give up their valuable time to ensure the juniors can ride their bikes, represent their club and gain important bike and race skills.

This valuable aspect of our club couldn’t happen without Heather Thompson, Dave Burns, Iain Houston and Fran Varley with continued support from Joanne & Simon Ketteringham and Martin & Sue Hobson

Volunteering remains critical to the success of all Harrogate Nova’s organised events which cannot run without the support from all club members.

Please regularly check the forum for information on future events and volunteer requests.
