A Wisbech St Mary woman has celebrated 20 years of helping people in Fenland to slim down.

Val Stanford became a Slimming World leader shortly after joining up in 1995.

Mrs Stanford now runs three sessions from St Peter’s Church Hall in Wisbech on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

She said: “I have had a lot of satisfaction of seeing people overcome obesity.

“It is good to know that people have been able to have important operations because of the weight loss.”

Mrs Stanford, who is pictured above in the centre of our photograph, celebrated her milestone achievement during a party at one of her sessions.
