Yes, should we even be talking about food and diet in one sentence? Well sometimes yes we do and we had the motivating Miranda in this week to tell us all about the inspirational Slimming World http://www.slimmimgworld.com groups of which there are new ones now at Moorhayes community centre, so even less reasons not to go as most groups are within walking distance in the town now... depending on where you live! So catch her on ABOUT TOWN. We would love to hear of any success stories too. Coming up for our New Year New You we will also be talking about a new Boot Camp in town and a new hobby have you tried Hockey or Fencing? Look out on the SPORTS SPOTLIGHT.
We are media partners with Exmoor Food Festival supporting the great food, restaurants, chefs and cafes in the area. First up we interviewed Chef and tutor Olivier Certain. Petroc have Olivier as a superb tutor for the catering students along with Nick Mort, catch these interviews on our Petroc page and the COOK LOCAL show.
