THERE were gold medals for Sienna Goodwin and Holly McDonagh at the Bury Spectrum Novice competition on Sunday (June 1).

The duo were part of a group of 10 South Essex Gymnastics Club members who competed at the annual event in Bury St Edmunds.

Sienna impressed in the advanced 6-7 age group and took top spot with a score of 47.90.

Maggie May Shepherd was also in that section and finished fourth – just missing out on the bronze by an agonising 0.1.

South Essex’s Isobel Cartwright, Amelia Hennelly, Darcie Meechan and Evie Carr also acquitted themselves well in this category.

In the advanced 7-8 age group, South Essex took the top three spots. Holly took gold with a score of 45.15, Ruby Miller silver (44.05) and Scarlett Shuttlewood bronze (43.75).
