So what have you done today, to make you feel proud?!

Sounds like a daft question to ask you all, but in true Heather Small style, we’ve been doing a fair bit to make us feel positively pleased this week.

We can reveal that Sally Gunnell OBE has hurdled her way into our lives as an ambassador for the HiQ fast fit network’s Local Hero Campaign.

The 1992 Barcelona gold medalist is working with HiQ to find some heroes in local communities across the UK.

She attended HiQ’s national franchise conference this week and has spent all of today on radio stations everywhere, promoting what promises to be a fantastic PR initiative.

Our campaign has been launched to coincide with HiQ’s attempt to position each of its 140 centre managers as ‘local heroes’ who provide a familiar, friendly service for all of their customers.

To work with an Olympic hero has been a big highlight, and Sally told us: “It is an honour to be ambassador for HiQ’s Local Hero Campaign. It is wonderful to now be able to champion the work of others, through this initiative. Everyone has a local hero in their lives.”

We want everyone to start nominating right away, so please get nominating on

We’ve also felt pretty proud to have won a new PR account with Go Fishing.

The fishing event has been on the lookout for an innovative PR agency to help them catch some big stories to publicise their July extravaganza.

Well done to Kathy for scaling the heights, reeling them in and netting a brilliant opportunity for us all. She should be breaming with confidence.

We’ve got hundreds of other puns up our sleeve, so some eye-catching headlines shouldn’t be in short supply!

We always keep our feet firmly on the floor here at Connect PR, which brings us neatly onto the opulent world of Amtico.

We are letting everyone know about a whole world of inspiration and creativity, courtesy of Amtico International at this year’s Grand Designs Live.

We love a good superlative in a press release, and we hope that people will love an opulent Amtico flooring at the event, which runs from May 1 to May 9.

And finally, spare a thought for our colleague Richard. The jovial Scouser hasn’t been in quite such high spirits this week, and is still holed up in Fuerteventura due to the ongoing Volcanic ash problems.

Rich is usually one for a good jape, but if we crack any gags about his predicament he may well smash us round he head with an ashtray. When he returns one day.

And on that, we are going to big you a happy weekend
