It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Families getting together, Christmas lights and festive decorations as far as the eye can see.

We are constantly looking for ways to help improve people’s lives through healthy eating, exercise, nutrition, and lifestyle. To wrap up the year we would like to share some key figures from our service and how they have made an impact on those taking part. And if you aren’t already signed up for our service, maybe these figures will inspire you to take part in the New Year.
