Two Slimming World groups are ringing in the changes for 2013.

Andrea Astin, who has been a Slimming World consultant for 18 years and already runs groups in Oakworth and Skipton, has taken on the Haworth class.

And Carla Weatherall, who runs a Cottingley group, is now also at the helm at Long Lee.

Andrea said: “I am passionate about helping people reach their target and am looking forward to meeting new and existing members.

“Slimmers of the Worth Valley now have two choices of days of the week to attend.”

The Oakworth group meets at Holden Hall on Wednesdays at 5pm and 7pm, and the Haworth group at the West Lane Baptist Church on Thursdays, also at 5pm and 7pm.

Long Lee members meet at the village’s Methodist Church on Tuesdays at the same times.

Carla said: “I am so excited about running the Long Lee group. Between Andrea and myself, we can serve some major parts of the town and help to rid members of the misery of being overweight.”
