Video: The Harrogate Town AFC mascot joins Willow Tree for Walk to School day

Some of the Children from Willow Tree School walked to school with Harry Gator, the Harrogate Town AFC mascot. (25 March 2022)

They met with Harry outside the club grounds on Wetherby road, and then walked down to the school.

They were greeted by the Mayor and Mayoress of Harrogate. Councillor Trevor Chapman, and Janet Chapman.

The event is co-ordinated across the district by Zero Carbon Harrogate, and has a good uptake. The schools have worked with the children to take ownership of the event, and promote it amongst themselves.
