Lasswade Gymnastics Club has cited their new facilities for bringing home 16 medals at the recent Scottish Levels Competition.

The club won six golds, six silvers and four bronze medals on individual pieces at the Perth event, as well as two golds, two silvers and a bronze for overall scores.

Lasswade Gymnastics Club committee member Gary Halliday believes the success is partly down to the club’s recent move to the state-of-the-art Lasswade Centre.

He said: “The club has moved recently into new facilities, which has really helped.

“It’s given everybody new focus, and a new kind of experience of really good training facilities, which is excellent.

“It’s given us a real boost going forward. We have had Scottish champions and people representing the country and we want to get back to that.”
