Burnham-On-Sea youngster celebrates national gymnastics medal win

A Burnham-On-Sea youngster is celebrating achieving a top medal at the national gymnastics championships.

Kian Hawkes is a Year 6 student at St Andrew's Junior School in Burnham-On-Sea and a member of Highbridge's Monarchs Gymnastics Club.

He travelled to Stoke-on-Trent to compete at the National Championships where he won a silver medal in the boys' floor gymnastics event.

The result also earned him a place in the British youth development squad - a great achievement.

Proud Kian was re-presented with his medal during the school's latest celebration assembly, where the pupils also got to watch a video clip of his performance.

"The whole school community has enjoyed sharing in his success and everyone at St Andrew's is really proud," the school's Jim Gillard told
