Trampoline group seeks funding


An Aberdeensh­ire trampoline group could be in line for a £1,000 boost from the council to help members spring into action outside of Scotland.

Trampoline and Double Mini Trampolini­ng Club has more than 130 gymnasts, from youngsters to adults.

And next week the team could be granted £1,000 by Aberdeensh­ire Council.

The gymnasts already compete outside Scotland, primarily in England, but several members take part in competitio­ns internatio­nally.

A report going before councillor­s states: “The funding will be used to give financial support to the gymnasts towards the costs involved in competing outside of Scotland and the UK.

“The club is the most successful trampoline club in Scotland and does not want financial constraint­s to inhibit its gymnasts from realising their dreams to take part in top flight events.”

A decision on the funding will be made by the Marr area committee.
