Gymnast to open new sports hall

A TALENTED tumbler will officially open the new sports hall at William Parker later this month.

Charlie Burrows, who has competed all over the world in gymnastics, will be at the Parkstone Road school on Thursday, April 28 to cut the ribbon at the new facility.

A member of the British Tumbling Squad and one-time fifth in the world in the 15 - 16-year-old age group, the gymnast will be guest of honour at the ceremony, which gets underway at 2.30pm.

Once open, members of the public, as well as pupils, will be able to use the new facility.
