HARNHAM Gymnastics Club celebrated a successful season at its Annual Party and Presentations event on 14th February, buoyed by the news of their recent Mike Slade Sports Scholarship award.
The £200 grant will fund a four hour course at the Waterside Gym Club in Southampton to be run by Chris O'Hagan, the South West Regional Officer for British Gymnastics.
The eight gymnasts who received the cheque on behalf of the Club were: Gaby Amos, Megan Lyness, Coral Burton, Harriet Legg, Jasmine Weeks, Samantha Smith, Rosie Cooper and Jess Stokes Bowler.
At their presentations, the gymnasts were deservedly presented with a certificate of achievement and there were special awards within each group.
These went to the following gymnasts: Olivia Warner, Rosie Cooper, Laura Burton, Coral Burton, Francesca Lewis, Luna Pelopida, Lucy Trigwell, Megan Dunlop, Megan Lyness, Ciara Slater, Sarah McCall, Nancy Walker and Gaby Amos.
The Junior Competition Cup was presented to Harriet Legg.
The Senior Competition Cup was presented to Gaby Amos.
The Junior Shield was presented to Jasmine Weeks and the Senior Shield was awarded to Coral Burton.
Each year the gymnasts and coaches vote for the "Harnham Club's Gymnast of the Year" and this year the winner was Coral Burton.
The club's next big event is the Annual Club Grades Competition on Sunday 23rd May at St. Edmund's.
