Sixth outlet for Little Gym

Little Gym franchise is to open its sixth outlet in the UK on London road, Bishop's Stortford on the 21st April 2008, after a two-year search for suitable premises.

The company provides children with a safe and fun environment to exercise and play and offers a range of themed classes and summer holiday camps. The Bishop Stortford branch will offer The Little Gym curriculum-based gymnastics programme for 10-month old babies to 12-year old children, which develops at the same pace as a child's cognitive and motor skills.

Virginia Barlow, who has experience in dance, gymnastics, coaching and early year's, owns the Bishop's Stortford branch. She said: 'After such a long wait, I am thrilled to be opening in just a few weeks' time and offer a huge thanks to everyone that has supported me!

'At a time when children's health is at the forefront of government policy and everyone's minds, there's a great need for facilities like The Little Gym, which provide exercise in a fun and nurturing environment, allowing even the least confident child to blossom. I have a great team, great premises and offer a programme that can give youngsters, of all abilities, a real headstart.'
