Pit clean Friday 29th July 2016

Our annual pit clean will take place on Friday 29th July 2016 at 4pm/4.30pm.

Could we ask for as many parents, gymnasts, coaches etc to come and volunteer their time to empty out our pit.

This year the whole of the pit needs emptied, cleaned and small sections of foam bagged and placed into the skip.

We need as much strength as possible to lift out the trampoline as this is being serviced this year.

Thank you for your support in this matter in advance.
