OLYMPIC gold medallist Sally Gunnell visited Tumble Tots this week to meet some budding mini athletes.

Sally, who is now a broadcaster, attended a session at Willingdon Trees Community Centre as part of Positive Parenting Week.

She chatted to the little ones and watched them carry out activities such as tackling ladders, barrels and beams. Positive Parenting Week offered parents of young children information on children’s behaviour, educational issues, and give parents a pat on the back for taking on the most important role of their lives.

Sally said, “I find the Positive Parenting articles most useful in my role as mother.

“As a working mother, it is important for me to make sure I have the right work-life balance.”
