IT SEEMS that Fenland is set for a bright future in gymnastics, judging by the number of youngsters who attended the West Walton Community Gymnastics Club taster session on Saturday.
More than 80 children attended the event at The Queen's School, Wisbech, and almost all of them have now signed up to join the rapidly expanding club.
Club coach Kirstie Harrison said: "It was a very enjoyable day and everyone who took part seemed to have lots of fun.
"I was absolutely shattered by the end of the day but we are absolutely delighted with the number of children who took part and it has boosted our membership to well over 120."
