Allington School headteacher Leane Barr praised Carole Foote’s dedication and hard work, adding: “Gymnastics is thriving in and around the Grantham district thanks to Carole Foote and her brilliant crew.

“The standard was exceptionally high and our school’s young gymnasts were particularly inspired by the spectacular floor routines performed by the secondary school pupils.”
