The sun shines on the Welcome Fair 2016

Welcome Fair

It’s the start of a new term for students attending Harrogate College and what better way to break the ice than a 20ft climbing wall and free pizza?

The sun shone on the Welcome Fair which saw new and returning students gathering together in front of Harrogate College’s newly developed ‘high street’ concept that includes the Image Academy hair salon, HG2 Café and Bistro on the Park.

Harrogate Town Football Club were the first to arrive and were an immediate attraction to those students who were keen to sign up to play for the college teams, male and female students alike.

The British Army arrived with a mobile climbing wall and an inflatable wrecking ball, to put the brave students to the test and to also put the Public Services students through their paces, ahead of their week long residential at Strensall Barracks next week.

Somebody ordered Domino’s and they arrived with heaps of free pizza, as well as offering student discounts in their stores!
