IT was party night at the Slimming World Fladbury group on Tuesday evening, as members celebrated the groups 1st anniversary, alongside their Mr Sleek and Miss Slinky competition.

Slimming World groups across the country, will be awarding their very own Mr Sleek and Miss Slinky 2018. Members who have successfully lost weight, following Slimming Worlds generous and 'extra easy food optimising' plan.

Fladbury Slimming World group, has lost a combined 185 stone in their first year, and have seen 22 members achieve their target weight. Life changes for members include becoming more active, and seeing reductions in medication.

Members chose their finalists, with each nominated member having a few moments in the spotlight.

As they all enjoyed a Slimming World style buffet, their "surprise special guest" - 'Elivis' appeared on stage.

Elvis then awarded the final winners! Miss Slinky - Edna Boult, 72 from Fladbury who has lost 5 stone 10lbs in 12 months, and is now approaching her target weight, said:"Im doing so much more than I've ever been able to do. I'm walking without my walking sticks, im doing aqua aerobics, and taking on more chores around the home and garden. I couldn't have done it, without the support of Bev and the wonderful members in our group. I never miss a week." and Mr Sleek - TJ Alford, 25 years old from Droitwich, who lost 4 and a half stone in 14 weeks said: "I was dragged along to Slimming World, by my girlfriend Holly, and her Mum Julie (Both successful Slimming World target members). Without them, I would never have joined. It's quite daunting for a male to join a Slimming Group. To be honest, when I started out and My consultant told me about "Free Food" and never feeling hungry whilst losing weight, I thought Rubbish! But Fair play, Ive been proven wrong."

Consultant Bev has this group in Fladbury Village Hall every Tuesday at 730pm, and Pershore Football Club, every Tuesday at 9am and 11am. For more details, call Bev on 07799 672658 or visit
