We sustained close to £200,000 of damage within the building and, if it wasn’t for the unbelievable help and support from Coaches, Parents, Fire service, TA soldiers and local companies there would have been more devastation.
We are now in the process of putting things right, our new tumble run is in place and we have lowered the track which in itself was a big job. Lots of below-ground work has been done by our super volunteers to improve our IT systems. We have had great support from Aviva through Weir Insurance Company, Sport England and the Newcastle City Council.
We moved part of the Academy into temporary warehouse accommodation in July and back ‘home’ again in September. Thanks to all our parents and volunteers who assisted with those fun processes 🙂
The drainage around the building is being addressed so hopefully this won’t happen again, the pits are going to be re-tanked and we now have the opportunity to make changes to the gym so that it will be better than it was when we first opened in 2001. A loan floor arrived this weekend, with our new, permanent floor area and matting arriving in around 3 weeks. Helpers are painting the skirting boards and putting the finishing touches to the gym. It’s all very exciting…We’re getting there – as you can see from the picture gallery below.

British National Development Plan Championships 2011
Over the weekend 14/15th May 11 The City of Newcastle Gymnastics Academy sent 9 boys to represent the North region at the British National Development Plan Championships at the GMAC Stadium in Birmingham. This resulted in the club walking away with 2 British champions, 1 Bronze medallist and Team silver.
In the Level 5 age group, Nathen Smith took Gold medal whilst James Hodgson narrowly missed out on the bronze medal finishing in 4th place with Lewis Graham finishing in 19th place. Together as a team they produced a great performance to finish with a team silver medal.
In the Level 4 age group, Daniel Nagy took Gold medal along with a perfect 10 on parallel Bars whilst Harry Ross took Bronze medal, alongside this James Stewart produced a personal best score to make this a very successful round of competition.
In the Level 3 age group, Danny Jones and Joseph Cuthbert produced personal best scores, as so did Billy Hibbert in the Level 2 age group in his first ever competition.
Fantastic results putting Men’s gymnastics back on the map for the North.
