Young gymnasts have returned to training at a club in Dagenham after the easing of Covid restrictions.

Catleaps Gymnastics has been hosting in-person, socially distanced group sessions for under-18s since April 19.

Helen Bates, media manager at Catleaps, said: “It's great to be back - we're progressing slowly, easing our gymnasts back into training safely with social distancing.

"Our coaches love being back but, with the requirement for reduced numbers in the gym, sadly our young leaders won't return until social distancing is relaxed.”

The club's members have had to make do with training from home and Zoom classes online during lockdown.
