A KELTY slimming group organiser got the chance to meet TV star Rylan Clark-Neal when they attended the annual Slimming World Awards earlier this month.

The event celebrated the organisation's 50th year and Alun Fotheringham was delighted to rub shoulders with the television personality.

Alun, who runs a group at Kelty Community Centre, said 2018 had been a brilliant year.

"We’ve launched our Slim for Life plan to give even more support to our target members, and won awards for both our magazine and food range," he said. "We’re hoping our Golden Year will be even more successful and we have a string of exciting activities planned to celebrate our 50th birthday in style, including the launch of brand-new websites and apps, golden events and special publications.

“So, this New Year I truly believe that joining a local Slimming World group is the best way for people to lose weight, learn new habits and make long-term healthy changes.

"Thanks to our eating plan they’ll see big results on the scales without ever having to feel hungry or deprived, and at our Fife groups they’ll discover a whole world of support and advice that’s sure to help them achieve their targets – and have a lot of fun along the way too!

"I’d love for anyone who wants to make a change to join us, I promise they won’t look back!”
