Gym club parent Kristy Messham has volunteered as a new welfare officer. Her daughter, Erin, is in the development class. Here, she explains a little more about herself.
I have always loved gymnastics as a sport and found myself wanting to become more involved when Erin started gym.
I work for the NSPCC in the Schools Service; working with children in primary schools to educate them about keeping themselves safe.
Safeguarding is something I am passionate about and I believe that it is really important that children know that they have somewhere to turn if they have problems or worries.
The role of welfare officer seemed like a great way to put this into practice and to also be involved in a sport that I really enjoy.
