Our New Student of the Year

On Tuesday the 27th August we lost a wonderful and much loved student, Hayley Parkinson


She had trained at the club for many years before she had a break to start a family.  In that time she achieved her 2nd dan black belt.  She was on the England squad and had won many trophies and medals at tournaments.  Hayley had even been selected to take part in the European championships in Sheffield.


Hayley had recently started back with us and had hopes of eventually taking her 3rd dan black belt.  Unfortunately she was taken from us before she had the chance.

 

As a tribute to Hayley the Student of the Year Award has now been changed to the

"Hayley Parkinson Student of the Year Award"
