Stratford RDA celebrated its achievements for 2019 at its Annual Awards Ceremony and combined Christmas party.  The table was laden with yummy food and riders, volunteers, their families and many of our sponsors and supporters joined together to congratulate the winners of a variety of trophies.  We were joined by International 3-day event rider, Bill Levett, who kindly came to help present the awards.  A visit from Father Christmas brought the evening to a close as he gave out presents helped by a very cheeky Elf.

Well done to all of our riders for their achievements this year as all of them have made progress and should be proud.  The riders and volunteers presented with trophies were:

Scarlett Lee-Lewis – Tracey Perks shield for Endeavour, consistently tries hard

Harrison Oldrey – Neil Hancock cup – Very good Progress with a special rosette to Archie Parsons
