Graham became involved with trampolining, when he took his son William along to classes at the Crags Sports Centre in Edinburgh. Classes were run by the Council, before management of the Crags passed over to Edinburgh Leisure, and Lauren Jeffrey began coaching the trampoline classes there. 

Lauren founded CETC, based at the Crags, in 2006, and the first Club Committee was created - with Graham at the helm as Chair. One of Graham’s initial tasks was to Chair the very first CETC AGM, which was held at the Commonwealth Pool, reading out loud the proposed CETC Constitution, cementing the official formation of the Club.

Graham continued in the role for over 3 years, remaining with the Club when they moved to their new training venue at the Lasswade Sports Centre, Midlothian in 2008. By this time, William had sadly given up his trampolining, but not before winning a medal one year at Perth – possibly because he was the only one in his group! But Graham continued in his role as Chair, giving his sound advice & help on all matters concerning the Club.

Graham has always been a great supporter of CETC, both with his time, & generosity in donating funds during his stint as Chair, and more recently this year in 2014 - helping to support Squad training & Judge development at the Club.

Graham was presented with the first ever ‘Honorary Life Membership’ of CETC for his services to the Club in 2009 – a well-deserved honour. Thank you Graham!
