A competitive 16-strong aged between eight and 15 from North Walsham Gymnastics Club took part in the Norfolk County Grades at the UEA.

The club won an amazing five silvers and two bronze medals and all the youngsters will be going to Ipswich to compete in the regional finals.

Head coach Alexis Thurston said: 'The girls performed beautifully and I am proud of all who took part, along with my team of coaches for their commitment and hard work'.

The 'Dream, Believe, Achieve' project is progressing and the club hope to be in their new premises by the end of the year.

'The club is so grateful for donations and grants from local and national charities and businesses. This has been invaluable to allow us to get to this stage.

'However we are continuously fund-raising to fully equip the new gym,' Alexis added.
