Members of Portishead Academy of Gymnastics paid a visit to Crockerne Primary School in Pill to show off their skills and recruit new members.

Coach Liz Kincaid brought along Gordano School student and Commonwealth gold, silver and bronze medallist, Ruby Harrold, along with a few other members of the academy.

Leah Wardingley, a year three pupil at Crockerne school, said: “We had seen Ruby Harrold on the TV.

“They showed us cartwheels with no hands, back flips and front flips. We also watched some videos on the screen.”
