I had put my name down to take two posies/bunches of flowers for people with June birthdays at Big WI this month. So had a rummage around the garden.
The speaker at Big WI was a lady from a company called OneSuffolk
running courses on behalf of Suffolk County Council for healthy living.
They do 12 week weight loss courses, stop smoking groups, liaise with
school nurses to work with families with over-weight children and
organise health walks.
I don't smoke but could do with losing a few stone. Came home and looked on line at their website for anything around this area - Nothing! They work mainly in the deprived areas of Suffolk so have loads of groups in Ipswich and Lowestoft. But something they can do is to give vouchers for 12 weeks for free at Slimming World, although I'd rather do their 12 week course as it looks at the mindset and reasons for over eating.
Coffee and cake(ironically we all ate some!) after the speaker of course and during refreshment time 3 people said how much they had enjoyed my short talk about house-moving and smallholding at last month's meeting. That was nice to hear. They said what an interesting life we had had - just seemed normal to me! but I guess it was a bit different to some people who might have only moved once or twice and stayed at the same job.
