130th Anniversary

2020 has had us up and down although not in the usual gymnastics way! 

Although we have not enjoyed a full year of activity in the gym, as always, there has been some great work across our community in Scotland. 

Because this year is different from normal with Covid and our 130th anniversary, we want to make our annual awards a bit different too, as we celebrate the people in our sport who make it a real gymnastics community.
