Gymnasts take part in festival

YOUNGSTERS had a spring in their step as they took part in a gymnastics festival.

Schoolchildren descended on Blyth Sports Centre for the Blyth and Bedlington School Sport Programme annual gymnastics performance festival.

The children, aged five to 16 years, were from eight schools across the programme and had been in training with their routines and performances for weeks.

And all of their hard work paid off as the event was incredibly successful.

Thanks went to all the schools who took part – Malvins Close Primary, Stead Lane First, Cambois First, Bedlington Junior High, Station First, Bede Academy South, Bede Academy North and Croftway Primary School.
