The lease is signed and we are very excited to announce that building work has started on our brilliant new facility, The Vault!
Opening in spring 2021, and created within two empty retail units in Carterton, Oxfordshire, this will be our purpose-built new home. Not just a gymnastics facility, but a community hub for other sports, groups and activities as well. The building will house a huge main gym, with a smaller second gym/ exercise space, a café and office spaces.
It has certainly been a rollercoaster of a ride to reach this point, but with an amazing team of volunteers, our inspirational director and head coach, Debra Courtenay-Crane and funding from both Sport England and West Oxfordshire District Council, it won’t be long now until The Vault will open its doors and offer sporting opportunities to people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.
The Vault will have a lasting positive impact on the Carterton community and provide a much-needed facility for Oxfordshire as a whole. Thank you to all the Carterton Gymnastic Club members who have put their hearts and souls into this and deserve the very best facility to train in.
As a Community Interest Company, Carterton Gymnastic Club is a not for profit organisation that believes every success should feed directly back into our community and we are excited about the opportunities The Vault will offer for the people of Carterton and Oxfordshire. We believe strongly that everyone, regardless of age, ability or disability should have access to a supportive fitness facility and we look forward to opening our doors to all.
We are still fundraising to be able to fully kit our new facility out, as well as looking for donations of paint, furniture, carpets and catering equipment, so if you can help in any way, please contact us through our website www.cartertongym.co.uk.
