Organisations Invited to Apply for Free Gymnastics Equipment

Local organisations are being invited to apply for a package of free gymnastics equipment which is being donated by Leisure World.


The gymnastics equipment (which is no longer in use at Leisure World) is being donated to encourage and support participation in gymnastics elsewhere in the Borough.


The package of equipment includes A-Bars, Vault Boxes, Springboards, Beams, Trampettes and Soft Play equipment.


Interested organisations are invited to apply for the entire package of equipment via an application form. The successful applicant will be judged on their ability to increase the current capacity of gymnastics available in the Borough.


Cllr Annie Feltham, Portfolio Holder for Communities and Leisure Services, said "The Sport and Leisure Service encourages residents to get more active.  By donating this equipment we want to support the expansion of gymnastics across the Borough.  I urge any local clubs or community organisations who think they can respond to the growing interest in gymnastics to submit an application."


The closing date for applications is 21December 2012.


For more information and to obtain an application form organisations should contact Ian Duggan at ian.duggan@colchester.gov.uk
