There will be NO training on either Monday 12th Feb or Wednesday 14th Feb next week (half term).
Monday 12th Feb we are arranging an evening at Jump St, Chelmsford. Please make you own booking for 7pm until 8pm. This is not a Blue Falcons event so you will need to ensure you have booked directly with Jump St to ensure a place.
There will be no training on a Monday evening for the next 4 weeks due to mock exams taking place in the gym. Wednesday evening training will still be on.
Good luck to all of you sitting your mock exams!

The First Essex Lottery draw on Sat 25 November at 8PM
We need your help! In order for the team to be accessible to youngsters of all backgrounds we keep the subscriptions extremely low. The equipment we use is very expensive to purchase and maintain to the rigorous safety standards demanded of us. We would like your assistance so that we can keep our subscriptions low and perform in front of as many people as possible, as this gives our young gymnasts the self-confidence and belief to achieve more through later life.
Simply click the link picture above to buy your tickets.
Thank you for your support and good luck!

Youth Festival of Remembrance, Leas Cliff Hall, Folkestone.
As you may be aware, due to popular demand, The Blue Falcons have been invited back to perform at this important event again. It is always a great pleasure to return here and along with the other youth groups that will be performing, take the opportunity to give our thanks for the sacrifices made by others in the past.
I have arranged coach travel for the day for which we would ask gymnasts to pay £3 per seat to assist with costs.
Gymnasts will need to be at CVHS by 08.15 at the latest. (8.00am ideally)
We will have a dress rehearsal at about 11.30.
We will have a Muster rehearsal at about 16.00.
Our performance will be at approximately 7pm. (Generally we perform straight after the interval).
Return to CVHS will be about 23.00. (Gymnasts will be asked to call you when we are nearly home.)
The team will be required to wear their travel kit and track suit bottoms ( and would be advised to take a coat as the weather can be cold and wet there.)
They will need:
- Food and drink for the duration or money to purchase some.
- Towel and toiletries to freshen up with.
- Money for small purchases.
- Fully charged mobile phone.
- Epipens, Inhalers, medication etc.,
- Something to occupy spare time, i.e a book, magazine, travel games, ipad (with earplugs or headphones)etc.,
Gymnasts will not be let off site unless accompanied by a member of the Adult Support Group or DBS checked senior gymnast.
I would be grateful if you could complete the form below and return to me, with payment, in an envelope marked ‘Folkestone Coach’ as soon as possible.
This will be a long day, but the end result will be worth it! I know I can rely on our team to give a great performance for such a good cause.
Good luck Blue Falcons!

New Romney Country Fayre – Saturday 29th July 2017
Dear Parents and Gymnasts,
As you are aware, The Blue Falcons have been asked to perform at the above venue.
Due to the distance, I have arranged for the team to travel by coach. To assist with the cost of hiring the coach we will be asking for a small fee of £3 per gymnast/ASG.
The gymnasts will need to be at CVHS by 6.15am at the very latest.
We will be performing twice during the day at 1.45pm and 4.15pm
(Prior to this we have been invited to join the parade to Fairfield Road.)
We aim to be back at CVHS approx. 8.00pm- 8.30pm.
Gymnasts will be advised to contact parents about 20 minutes before arrival at CVHS to confirm collection time. It would be appreciated if parents could wait until the team have unloaded the lorry and put equipment away before taking their children home.
The gymnasts MUST wear their travelling kit.
They will need the following:
- Food for the day and/or money to purchase food.
- Plenty of water! It will be a long and possibly warm day and gymnasts will need to keep hydrated.
- Money for small purchases at the event.
- Mobile phone (fully charged)
- Sun cream (dependant on weather)
- Inhalers, Epipens etc.,
If you are taking your child/children personally, could you please confirm this on the slip below.
Please return the completed and signed slip including money to me by Wednesday 26th July 2017.
