Safety Flooring Replaced in the gymnasium hall.
For some time now the Club has been seeking to replace areas of the gymnastics hall floor that have become damaged and worn. Our primary consideration in undertaking this work is to maintain the safety of the children and staff who have to train and work in these areas.
In November of last year, we successfully bid for funds to finance the essential work from the Up 2 U Scheme, part of the Bellingham Local Assemblies Mayor's Fund. Since then, we have been liasing with Gymnova, the specialist gymnastics equipment company - who fitted out our gymnasium when it was built, on the sizeable project of replacing these damaged areas of floor.
During the second week of April, the new flooring, and all the paraphernalia required to fit it, was delivered to the Club premises; then work began in earnest to complete the task. Working around our hectic schedule of classes, the Gymnova team of Charlotte and Graham worked like Trojan's to complete the work in as short a time as possible - thus minimising disruption. A huge Thank You to them for their efforts.
The Club would like to thank the Mayor's Fund, Bellingham Local Assembly for helping to fund this project.
Displayed below are a series of photos' taken before, during and after the work. These photos' capture in detail just exactly why we had to undertake this replacement project and how the end result has once again made sure the children who attend Ladywell Gymnastics Club do so in the safest environment possible.
