We treat all welfare matters very seriously and would always encourage all club members and parents/guardians to immediately raise any concerns with a member of staff.

The GymMark Scheme has been developed by British Gymnastics (BG). Its purpose is to provide recognition for clubs that are committed to providing quality experiences, encouraging young people to take up a sport, whilst focusing on improving their talent and maintaining lifelong participation in sport.
GymMark Club Accreditation is based on 5 modules of best practice:
Training and Events Programme
Duty of Care and Child Protection
Sports Equity and Ethics
What does it mean for Bedwas Gymnastics Club?
Gaining GymMark accreditation means that Bedwas Gymnastics Club is recognised by the British Gymnastics Association and their partners as a safe, effective and child-friendly club, providing a service in the community that children and young people, their parents/carers and others with a passion for Gymnastics can trust.
We have members with severe nut allergies. It is very important that no nuts, peanuts, nut spreads or similar enter the building. Not even in sealed packets or kept in bags. Many thanks for your cooperation.
