Chepstow gym club saved from closure thanks to crucial funding

A local gymnastics club has been able to reinstate sessions for the local community after lockdown thanks to vital support from Barratt Homes.

Kestrels Gymnastics, which provides gymnastics sessions for people in Chepstow and surrounding areas, has been selected to receive a £1,000 grant from the Barratt Homes Community Fund.

With the obvious challenges that the global pandemic and the countrywide lockdown brought about for the club, the grant from the five-star housebuilder couldn’t have come at a better time.

Shirley Lazere-Bennett, Head Coach at Kestrels, is delighted that the grant is helping to keep the club open for the local community.

She said: “Like many other businesses, we had to completely shut up shop during lockdown, but this funding means we have been able to reinstate our training sessions after 21 weeks. It’s been great to welcome everyone back to the club once again, thanks to the support from Barratt Homes.”

Kestrels Gymnastics provides fun and competitive sessions for pre-school age children to adults that aim to boost physical and mental health, in a safe, enjoyable environment. Sessions include gymnastics, trampolining and Parkour.

Steve Williams, Barratt Homes’ managing director said: “It is great that we have been able to support businesses like Kestrels Gymnastics in what has been an extremely challenging year. I’m delighted to hear that the club can now get back to what they do best and make a real difference in the community.”

Barratt Homes’ Community Fund is a dedicated financial resource that helps to support local causes which improve the quality of life for those living in the region.
