Have your say

THEY may be growing in members but this new slimming group is shrinking in size.

The group, which meets at Wickham Community Centre, in Mill Lane, every Wednesday, has received two awards for attracting 80 new members.

The Slimming World group was set up in April and since then its members have lost hundreds of pounds — even shedding an incredible 28 stone in just one month.

Its dedicated leader Rebekah Mann set up the group after she lost three stone at a Slimming World group in Hedge End.

She said: ‘It’s nonstop at the moment, but it’s great to have a job that I’m so passionate about.

‘Hopefully the group will expand even more in future.’

The group meets at 5.30pm and 7.30pm every Wednesday. For more information email
