The Rotary Club of Huntingdon has supported this hugely successful Gymnastic Club for a number of years including money for bursaries to help young people to make full use of the facilities at the club.
The success of the club has been in terms of 'Gymnastics for all'. Members of the elite squad win national and international competitions on a regular basis and there are weekly clubs for young people of all abilities as well as for groups with special needs. The waiting list for membership is now very large and the club has plans for major extensions which the Rotary Club is keen to support.
