Olympic gymnast, Beth Tweddle, will be greeted with a colourful homecoming celebration this Sunday, September 2nd, in Bunbury. 

Hundreds of well-wishers are expected to converge on the Pavilion, in Hurst Close, Bunbury, between 3.00pm and 5.00pm, when the Mayor of Cheshire East Council, Councillor George Walton, will announce the Council's proposals to bestow upon her 'Freedom of the Borough'. 

The 27-year-old won her first Olympic medal at her third and final games earlier this month in what could be her last major competition before her retirement. 

Beth has made gymnastic history for Team GB during the London 2012 Olympics as Britain's most successful female gymnast with an international career spanning more than 14 years.

It is quite un-nerving to be walking along the pavements in the village particularly on Cheshire Street opposite the butcher's where the footpath is quite narrow and to have a huge lorry thunder by less than a metre away from one. They often appear to be exceeding the speed limit. I just wonder...
