The day the Mayor came to visit

Last night saw the Mayor of Brentwood, Cllr. Frank Kenny, his colleague Cllr. Joan Holmes, Deputy Chair of the council's Leisure, Sports & Culture panel, Bob McLintock, Brentwood's Leisure, Sports & Culture Advisor (and erstwhile Chief Executive) and Jo Cory, Sport Development Officer, visiting us for the 'official launch' of our new trampoline. This 'International standard' trampoline cost more than £4,000 and was bought using £1,000 from Brentwood Council (Brentwood Academy Club Scheme), £2,000 from Jack Petchey and the balance from our own fund-raising. The Mayor also presented Dave Kingaby and Paul Kitchen with their Jack Petchey 'Outstanding Leader' awards which were achieved for 2007 and 2008 respectively and resulted in the £2,000 funding referred to above.

The event gave opportunity for many photographs some of which are shown in the collage below:
