Local children’s gymnastics group, Jesters Gymnastics Club, has been able to buy brand new gym equipment thanks to WDH and Horbury Financial Services. The not-for-profit organisation based in Pontefract and Featherstone received a £1500 Community Grant from WDH and £350 from Horbury Financial Services to buy a new air track to help gymnasts improve their tumbling skills and training. With over 20 years’ experience, Jesters Gymnastics Club works with over 200 children, aged five to 18, to learn and improve their gymnastics skills. Jess Garrett, Head Coach at Jesters Gymnastics Club said: “The children absolutely love the new air track. We bought it from Airtrack UK who have been brilliant.

Published 20 November 2014

We're running a mega Christmas Advent Calendar competition in the winter edition of your tenant newsletter, WDH News, which is being posted next week (Monday 24 November onwards). Here are the six simple steps you'll need to follow to be in with a chance of winning an iPad.

1. Take your copy of WDH News and the carrier sheet out of the newsletter - don't throw either of them away!

 

 2. With the symbols facing you, slide the carrier sheet between pages 2 and 3.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. On December 1, open the first door of the advent calendar to reveal a symbol.

 

 

4. Search through the newsletter to find that symbol. Next to the symbol will be a question.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. Log on to facebook.com/wdhupdate and post your own answer to the question on the competition post for that day. HINT - if you 'like' our page, the daily competition post will appear in your timeline automatically every day.

 

6. Repeat every day until Christmas Eve. For every day you enter we'll put your name into the draw to win the iPad so the more you play the more chance you've got of winning the top prize just in time for Christmas.
