Age Concern Boston and South Holland has gained funding from Lincolnshire NHS to put on three further healthy eating programmes during 2011.

The latest course took place at St Mary’s Church Hall in Long Sutton.

Ten over 50’s – both men and women – attended the six-week course which was designed to offer healthy eating advice, help with knowing what to look out for when shopping, a chance to practice cooking skills and most important of all eating what was produced in good company.

The next programme will also be held at St Mary’s, due to popular demand. It is anticipated that at least one of the remaining two will be held in the Gosberton and Donington area.

“However, if you belong to a group in a different area that has several members interested we may be able to set up a programme in your area provided suitable facilities are available,” said Sue McLaughlin, Fit as a Fiddle co-ordinator for Age Concern Boston and South Holland.

“All sessions are for a maximum of 12 people, completely free, lots of fun and we are looking for those who are on their own or in a couple wishing to eat more healthily and learn new ideas as well as those who have cooked all their lives but are now on their own and are willing to share their expertise with others whilst enjoying cooking and eating in company again.”
