Dozens of local gymnasts came together to take part in a winter gymnastics display at Maltby Leisure Centre.

More than 100 youngsters were involved in the event which was aimed at celebrating and showcasing gymnastic talent in the area.

Former England gymnast, Helen Galashan, made a surprise visit to watch children perform..

Youngsters had the chance to chat to Helen about her career, which includes competing as a gymnastic before retiring and becoming a synchronised diver with twin sister Carol.

Helen said: “The event had a Winter Wonderland theme and demonstrated the amazing work that is being done across Rotherham.

“I had the chance to speak to the gymnasts and the audience prior to the display and explain to everyone about my journey as a gymnast and how I started in a similar place to them.

“I then had the opportunity to sit back and watch the display which was brilliant.

“It was amazing to see such a big group of gymnasts showcasing all of their hard work”.

The event was organised by the Rotherham Gymnastics Network Group including Places for People Leisure, Rotherham Sports Acro and Acrocasts.
