Thank You To Our Members

It’s nearly the end of the month and we are thrilled that Wetherby Gymnastics Club continues to operate strongly through its home training programme. We would like to thank our members for working with us during this time and keeping the positive club spirit going.

Our gymnasts have been completing their online training with vigour and we want to thank them for their commitment to the sport and the club.

We are equally fortunate in our impassioned volunteer coaches who keep the ideas and effort running unseen, operating behind the scenes. We thank them for their enthusiasm.

We finally would like to thank the unsung heroes of the triangle, our parents. We were fortunate enough to be able to reduce our fees to the nominal amount of £5 per month during this period and are thrilled that every one of you have chosen to keep your gymnasts as members. Not only that, you support the gymnasts daily with their online conditioning and activities as well as helping them to stay in touch with us and each other.

We are proud of you all and can’t wait to see the extended family of Wetherby Gymnastics Club back together in the gym.

Thank you and stay safe.
