SULLY Budokan Judo Club members and parents were delighted to meet Barry Town Council Mayor, Councillor Claire Curtis, on her visit to the club on Wednesday, November 28, to present a cheque.
The club extends their thanks to Cllr Claire Curtis and Barry Town Council.
Club members demonstrated their judo skills to Cllr Curtis. The primary classes, ages from six to nine years were joined by juniors, 10 years to 15 years, in a judo session.
The primaries took on the juniors and seniors in randori and groundwork, impressing the Mayor with their breakfalling skills.
Four juniors recently competed in the BJC closed competition in Hereford. Ben Hanson, Rhys Holmes, Jacob Court and Michael Hogan with Jacob and Michael achieving bronze medals.
Other club members were also successful, with Robert Cavaye gaining a silver medal and Ian Evans a gold medal.

All the club members are looking forward to the Christmas competition in two weeks.
