The Christmas Show and Club Awards evening on Saturday was the biggest ever with record numbers of disciplines, gymnasts and spectators.  This resulted in a very lively and hectic event but exciting show, especially for the first session.

These events never happen without the unstinting commitment of coaches, volunteers and the preparation and skill of the gymnasts themselves.  I hope you all agree the displays were impressive and a credit to all involved.

As always on hand at the show were the photography team from MRC Photo and for those of you that did not have the time or could not fight the crowds on the day, MRC Photo now have all the action shots and presentation photos available from their website www.mrcphoto.co.uk  If you do not have one of their cards from the event with the password access code, please contact the reception desk at the gym from 1600.

Among all the well deserved award winners to receive recognition for their hard work and achievements throughout the year was Ryan Tam Lit-Taylor, who was presented with the Les Youngman Award, as Gymnast of the Year for 2013. (picture coutesy of MRC Photo).

Proceeds for all the fundraising at the event will, as always be invested in improvements in the facilities and equipment at the gym. The first of which must be the sound system which we all agree really struggled on the day.  We thank you for your generous support and congtratulations to those who won prizes in the Raffle. There are a few prizes still to be collected and the winners should have been notified but please check those ticket stubs with reception when you are next at the Gym.

Finally a big thank you to the core band of parents that gave of their time to help set up and/or clear up. If you feel you could offer half an hour of support from time to time for events next year, please contact us. All assistance is very much appreciated.
