Local charity Maldon and District CVS have teamed up with ACE Weight Management to offer the free My Weight Matters Programme to local residents. The weekly drop in launched in August running out of the Harbour coffee morning on a Monday morning but grew so popular that it has moved to the MOAT Homes offices at Fullbridge Mill where organisers say more people can be supported.
The sessions now held at the Mill between 10-11am offer participants support through the 12 week ACE Weight Management sessions with trained volunteers and staff on hand to have a chat and provide workbooks and tips. If you are interested in the Weight Management programme simply call the Weight Management Helpline on 0800 022 4524 (option 3) or pop along on a Monday.
With the success of the Maldon drop in the charity is now also planning to launch sessions at other locations across the Maldon district, to accommodate and support as many people as possible.
Volunteers are needed in Maldon and wider as both greeters and advisors.
