From the 10th May to the 22nd May 2021 exam tables will be in use for this time period. As with every year, exams take place during May. This will have no effect on our gymnast's training, and we continue as normal, without the use of bars temporarily. We will only be using half the hall but will have full use of other apparatus that we usually train on.
The hall will be back in full action once the exams have finished, and we will resume all apparatus as normal from that day forwards.

Crowdfunder March-April 2021
30th March 2021
We are striving to make all of our equipment safe, and accessible for our members to use across all gymnastic disciplines within our club.
After the Covid-19 pandemic hit we were left without a space to train. Having had to move a couple of times before our equipment has ended up in different locations in storage. Along with all that has happened, and with moving, we found that damage to some of our equipment has occurred.
We need urgent support so we can be a fully functioning club again, and wouldn't appreciate any help.
Please check out our crowdfunding link for more information and to give a donation. CROWDFUNDING and for all of the fundraising we are doing we have a fundraising page right here. FUNDRAISING

Return to training April 2021
23rd February 2021
As you may have heard, we are entering STEP 1 of the UK's exit of the National lockdown from the 8th March 2021. From what we understand gymnastics will be part of STEP 2. This means if all goes well, we will return to training on the week of the 12th April 2021, which is after Easter break.
We will await confirmation from British Gymnastics and will follow all guidance provided by our governing body. We hope that this news gives you an optimistic view after the last year that we have all had. As always, thank you for your support and for sticking by us throughout this time.
We cannot wait to see you in person soon, keep checking back for more updates, and news.
New Gymnast corner
31st January 2020
We are launching a brand new gymnasts corner on our home page and our monthly newsletter. We have such an appreciation of our members, we want to show how thankful we are by featuring them on our platform.
If you would like your child to be featured on our website, on our home page, you need to submit a video of your child doing a safe skill they have already learned.
If you would like your child to be featured in our newsletter you can take an action shot, or a still pose doing a static skill. You can send multiple footage or pictures and we will upload the best one.
The gymnast corner will feature the gymnasts favourite International / Elite gymnast, favourite apparatus and favourite skill.

We look forward to your submissions.
Zoom break February 2021
29th January 2021
Thank you to all members participating in our online gymnastics zoom sessions during this third National lockdown. We have been going for four weeks, so we are taking a one week break, after the last sessions on Saturday 30th January, and will resume back on the week of the 8th February 2021.
It's important that our gymnasts continue with sessions, and keep up with weekly communication with their coaches. We feel it helps with mental health, inclusivity, and general physical health.
We also are actively trying very hard to make it possible for the club to continue after we eventually are able to return to in-person training, and without gymnast participation online, the club financially will not be able to stay operational, there are still running costs the club is incurring.
If you have any questions or concerns keep checking back here or please do email us at email@example.com
See you back on Zoom on the week of the 8th February, with the same meeting ID's as before.
Happy New Year
4th January 2021
To all of our members, we would like to wish you a Happy New Year. We hope that 2021 brings much more happiness, health and wealth to you all.
Thank you for standing by us during a year we did not see coming. We hope that Christmas provided a much-needed break from last years chaos.
The first few sessions of 2021 will be on zoom, and we will be providing you with schedules shortly.
Once again Happy New Year, we can't wait to see you again soon in person.
