A meeting to tackle the borough’s reputation as an obesity hotspot is set to take place next month.

Currently, Bexley has the third highest levels of overweight and obese four to five-year-olds in London.

The council is looking for residents’ views on how to tackle the rising levels of obesity at its Great Weight Debate next month.

Karen Elliot-Brown recently picked up her third diamond award as a WeightWatchers coach, and is keen for people to get involved.

The weight loss group already takes in referrals for people with a high BMI.

The triple-diamond winner, who runs classes at Bexleyheath Goals Centre, said: “We do see people come off medication and take a more holistic approach to health.

“Losing weight is all about how you feel in your mind, now we focus on that we really see a change in peoples confidence as well as their weight.”

A variety of different speakers will be available on the day to discuss obesity and Bexley council will be on hand to show some of their early ideas to tackle the health problem.

To get involved, visit The Angelus Centre on Bexley Road, Erith, between 10am and 4pm on April 26.
