TOWN turned 10

Campaspe News - - NEWS -

THE Rochester Take Off Weight Nat­u­rally (TOWN) Club has reached dou­ble dig­its.

The club cel­e­brated its 10th birth­day re­cently with a party, and of course some cake.

Mem­ber Judi Bur­gin said all cur­rent mem­bers re­ceived a badge to cel­e­brate the oc­ca­sion.

‘‘We have 18 mem­bers now and there have been a to­tal of 126 over the years with 21 grad­u­ates,’’ she said.

‘‘And we have lost a to­tal of 693.1kg — which is like los­ing a per­son ev­ery year.

‘‘We in­vited our first ex­ec­u­tive back and some past mem­bers came along.’’

Ms Bur­gin said the club is al­ways look­ing for new mem­bers and ev­ery­body can take part.

‘‘Whether you want to lose one or 20 ki­los this is a great way to be so­cial and be healthy at the same time,’’ she said.

‘‘There are a few mem­bers who haven’t re­ally lost any­thing over their time with us, but if they hadn’t been with us they would have got­ten big­ger.

‘‘That is some­thing I like about the club, it gets peo­ple out so­cial­is­ing, es­pe­cially those who nor­mally wouldn’t.’’

The group meets ev­ery Tues­day from 4.30pm-6pm at the Rochester Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.
