The "Flog It!" team pays a visit

Brentwood School & Brentwood Trampoline Club were pleased to welcome the BBC's Flog It! team recently with it's presenter Paul Martin. This popular antiques programme regularly includes a segment on some item of historical interest in the local area. Their interest had been stimulated by the history article on our club's website which showed how a local man, Ted Blake, made significant contributions to the development of competitive trampolining. All being well the show, which should be broadcast next year, will show Tim Blake (Ted's son) being interviewed in the school's library and Hannah McCann and Scott Gregory being interviewed and also performing for Paul in the Courage Hall. Apparently one of Paul's fond memories of his school-days features the school trampoline on which he recalls doing somersaults. Pictured are Tim, Scott, Paul & Hannah.
