Gymnasts are reminded that they should not be wearing any jewellery, bracelets, friendship bands or ear-rings.

All work is done barefoot without shoes, socks, tights or leggings.

our new Junior Overall Champion Isabel Faulkner and to Jasmine Cross, retaining the
Overall Senior title.

Hurstpierpoint Christmas Fair 2019
Thank you to everyone involved in last year's Christmas Fair. The warm atmosphere of the Village Centre
was certainly welcoming compared with the wet day outside.
Stalls are already available for this year's event.
The Fair raises valuable funds for the Club.
Family Bonfire & Fireworks 2019
Thank you everyone who came to our Family Bonfire event last year. Although the crowd was substantially down,
the bonfire and fireworks certainly were not. A good crowd enjoyed easy parking, fireworks prompt
at 6.30pm and a huge bonfire that caught very well.
Our grateful thanks go to all those who helped. The event raised valuable funds for Oldland Mill,
five schools and the Club.
For 2019 please book Sunday the 3rd November as the date to be there.
Tee-shirts and Leotards
Our grant funding is enabling us to provide subsidised Tee-shirts
for all gymnasts - only £2 each, while stocks last!
All sizes of new leotards are currently available through the club.
With our financial support we are now able to reduce the cost of both
Girls leotards and Boys leotards to £20.
