WIGAN athletics’ star Jenny Meadows dropped in to a Hindley community centre to celebrate a successful nursing scheme.
The 800 metre runner headed down to St Peter’s Pavilion in Hindley to mark one year since the start of the Ashton, Leigh and Wigan’s Family Nurse Partnership.
The team of family nurses, which is run by Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS Trust, provide help and support to young parents under the age of 20 in Wigan borough.
They visit young mums-to-be and their partners regularly during their pregnancies and after they give birth until their children turn two.
The team also provide practical advice on areas such as health and wellbeing, giving birth, looking after their baby, childcare, housing, finances, education and training.
