We were lucky to receive a workshop from the gymnastics athlete Frank Baines to encourage the children to take up sport. Frank is a three time Commonwealth Games medal winner for Scotland and has won multiple senior British medals across several apparatus, proving his qualities as an all-around gymnast. This was also the case throughout the junior ranks, where Frank won two British all-around titles as well as claiming the Junior European all-around title. He is the current Scottish champion and recently won World Challenge Cup gold and silver medals for Great Britain. He moved to train at Pegasus Gymnastics Club in Maidstone earlier this year.
