    you may already know this and im sure other councils may have something similar, but the local authority have a nhs group called lose weight feel great and it gives you 12 weeks of slimming world free! it also gives u a 45 minute exercise class and you dnt have to have alot of weight to lose to qualify. Sorry if you already know this

    I live in Sunderland and doctors here can do that too, problem is to use the voucher you can't have been attending and paying already in the last 6 months!

    im from atherton cocktail princess so not far at all. Last night my consultant Tracy urged current members to ring the number as they were entitled to as long as they had not accessed it in the last 12 months. They also have a website

    oooh- not far at all!
    The problem with Wigan is that (despite it being a stereotype) it IS full of pie shops- lol

    In Hindley we have a new restaurant called 'Summat to Ate' and it is perfect for SW. It does steaks served on a hot rock so you cook it yourself at the table (without oil). You can get this with a jacket potato and veg, so free on EE

    oooh sounds good may have to venture that way, and the pie shop is very true, atherton is very small with a small high street and it has at least 3 pie shops and prob 4 cafe all have a variety of pies on the menu

    Just wanted to add to this post on a different subject, but relevant to Wigan:

    In wigan market hall there is a new sausage stall (I think it is actually called 'the sausage stall' lol) that has opened up and it sells 'sin free sausages'- I asked if they meant 'syn' free and he said yes- the guy said they have applied to have them endorsed by SW and the endorsement should be through any day- but he said he knew they were defo syn free and the certificate is a formality.

    I bought some of the plain pork ones and they were DELICIOUS- really fat and juicy- like proper good sausages. They did several flavours, can't remember exactly but I am going back for more and can HIGHLY recommend them

    Thanks for the info mrs lever. My boyfriend lives in Wigan (well Standish), but I live in Manchester, and we spend most of our time here, unfortunately.
    Lovely to see some local people though!

    You're right about the pie shops in Wigan, eeeek. I tend to go to Subway on Standishgate and get a salad bowl - always healthy!
