Let's Talk - - STAYING ACTIVE -

Mar­garet is 78 years old and a keen mem­ber of the Fit Vil­lages Kess­ing­land Be­gin­ners Run­ning pro­gramme.

Mar­garet says: “I am proud to say that I have re­duced my blood sugar read­ing from 8.2 to 4.9... and I have lost two stones.

“I am the old­est of our group - I walk while the oth­ers run. I also walk briskly round Kess­ing­land every day which takes me be­tween 25 and 30 min­utes. I feel so much bet­ter for do­ing it.”

Ben Jack­son, who man­ages the Fit Vil­lages project, says: “Mar­garet is a great ex­am­ple of some­one who has whole­heart­edly com­mit­ted to a lo­cal Fit Vil­lages project, at­tend­ing every week and im­prov­ing her health and well­be­ing.

“This is much more than a run­ning group, it is an im­por­tant so­cial ac­tiv­ity which brings peo­ple to­gether. They have de­vel­oped a very strong bond, and it is a priv­i­lege to see them grow and thrive to­gether.”
