Highbridge gymnastics club celebrates £23,000 equipment boost

A Highbridge gymnastics club has received a major funding boost that will help it buy much-needed new equipment.

Monarchs Gymnastics Club, which opened its new premises in Brue Way on Highbridge's Walrow Industrial Estate earlier this year, has received grants totalling £23,000 from Burnham and Highbridge Town Council, Sedgemoor District Council, a Highbridge Community Fund and British Gymnastics.

"This welcome funding is enabling us to purchase equipment to encourage over 12's into the sport," Club Secretary Sue Merrett told

"We have just started a new group for 11-18 year-olds on a Saturday morning at 9am. The new equipment will also help our adult sessions on Monday evenings."

"We also have been able to purchase new equipment for toddlers and pre-school sessions. This equipment will also be available to families booking birthday parties."
