Maldwyn hosts Urdd Competition

On Friday 23rd January, Maldwyn Dragon’s hosted the Urdd gymnastic competition for primary schools within the Powys area.  There were 32 entries from six schools travelling from Churchstoke, Llandysillio, Llanidloes, Montgomery and Newtown.  It was an exciting competition, for 7-11 year olds, where final scores were close in most categories with results as follows:

Girls: Rosie Rees – Gold, Leah Richards – Silver and Eleanor Taylor – Bronze

Boys: Joseph Knox – Gold, Nick Negri – Silver and Finlay Jones – Bronze

Pairs: Eleanor Taylor & Lucy Lee-Jervis – Gold, Rosie & Nadia – Silver and Menna & Leah – Bronze



The winners from each category will go on represent their school in  Aberystwyth on 11th February.  We wish them all luck, with particular congratulations to our very own Rosie, Eleanor and Lucy, who’ll also be flying the flag for Maldwyn Dragons.  Lots more competition photographs can be seen on our gallery page, please take a look.
