We’re getting together – at long last – with our Festival of Gymnastics on the weekend of 11-12 September.
The festival is an opportunity to see what the girls have been working on over the last year – we can’t wait for you to see them.
Everyone has received an email with details of how to attend and once we know numbers everyone will be given a time slot.
We will be accepting donations of teddies for the teddy bear tombola, leotards for the leotard stall and raffle prizes will be on offer along with refreshments.
We can’t accept homemade goodies this year due to Covid regulations but any shop-bought treats would be gratefully accepted.
We’re using the festival to launch our appeal to raise £50,000 for the next phase of the club’s development in helping our gymnasts to improve their skills.
The appeal, 50k for 50 Years, will help us to finance new pits at our unit at Gwernaffield.
The use of giant pits – which are filled with foam blocks – allow gymnasts to stay safe while learning new moves.
As part of the appeal, we’re launching our first sponsorship event, 50 Miles in 50 Days, from 12 September to 31 October and a sponsorship form will be emailed to families and also available to download from our website.
For our youngest gymnasts, we will be encouraging them to walk five miles in those 50 days.
You will be invited to track their walks online via Strava – in our club area – and there will be weekly updates and prizes along the way.
We look forward to seeing you all next weekend.
