British track and field athlete Laura Samuel paid a visit to Dereham Church Infant and Nursery School on Friday, and completed a training session with each class.

Deputy head teacher, Amy Futers, said: “We were really pleased to have Laura pay us a visit, it helped to promote healthy eating and exercise to the children. “Those between the ages of three and seven completed a circuit and even the some of the adults joined in.

“The children also completed sponsorship forms which raised money for the school and for the Sports for Champions scheme.”

Ms Samuel is originally from Leicester and competes in the triple jump. She is ranked third among British women and was the silver medallist at the 2014 Commonwealth Games and in the 2010 World Junior Championships in Athletics.
