BLACKlog Editorial #24 Leys Institute Gymnastics Club since 1906

Leys Institute Gymnastics Club, a community asset since 1906, situated in St Marys Bay in Auckland and run by husband and wife team Lynn and Warren Burroughs is being forced with no other option than to close down. After years of giving grace and poise to the surrounding community of children, adults and some of New Zealand's top athletes, Leys Institute Gymnastics Club's government funding has come to a halt.

It could be a disappointing end to the gymnasium but we can show our community spirit and support on their Facebook page in hope that the Leys Institute will have the chance to live on for all of our new generations to enjoy and benefit from!

In our true Black form, we hopped over to visit Lynn Burroughs at Leys Institute and got our limbs stretching and our balance tested and trained!
