TOWN turned 10
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.
