New Gym Tots classes

Toy frog on beamWe are delighted to announce a brand new class to be added to our timetable at our Gwernaffield gym.

We look forward to introducing you to our Gym Tots sessions which will be run by Tara, our Level 2 Women’s Artistic, and Level 1 Preschool Gymnastics Coach.

Gym Tots will be a fantastic and fun way for your little ones to burn off some energy, learn and develop every day skills, meet and interact with new friends and enjoy the opportunity to explore a fully equipped gym.

Some key information you will need to know about our new sessions:

  • Suitable for babies from crawling to 3 years
  • £4 for an hour and a half session, including a soft drink and biscuit
  • Free play sessions, parent/guardian led
  • Changing facilities available
  • Age appropriate equipment
  • Sessions to start mid July

The sessions will run on a trial basis. However, we do hope that Gym Tots becomes permanent on our timetable.

Our official start dates/times are:

  • Monday 16 July: Two sessions allocated at  9:30-11am and 1-2:30pm due to popular demand following a vote on our Facebook page
  • Wednesday 18 July: One session at 1-2:30pm

The classes will be run on a pay as you go basis, so no need to sign up – just come along when you can.

We look forward to welcoming you into our gymnastics facility here in Gwernaffield.

Clothes recycling fundraiser

Items requestedWe have teamed up with Roberts Recycling Ltd to do a clothes recycling fundraiser.

All gymnasts will be given a bag to fill with clothes for recycling in their classes from Thursday 7 June.

The bags need to be returned by Sunday 17 June. We can only take re-saleable items and the specifics are visible on the bag.

We can raise £450 for the club and £50 for The Fire Fighters Charity per tonne collected.

Please tidy out your wardrobes and get your families to join in too!

There will be additional bags in the parents room but you can use any clean black bin bag.
