A bid to find Eastwood Slimming World’s top slimmer of the year has ended in a three-way tie following a ballot among its members.

The title “ Young at Heart Slimmer of the Year” has taken over from the Young Slimmer title as the group has no-one, as yet, under the age of 20. The title was shared between Kelly Grainger, Jo Penny and Zoe Brown.

The determined trio set the standards during a competitive weight-loss challenge set for them by Eastwood Slimming World’s teacher Deborah Cooper, who lives in Nuthall.

“Though we have a membership of around 40 ladies attending the morning sessions at the Dora Phillips Hall (Eastwood Girls Centre), none of them qualifies to be Young Slimmer because of their ages,” said Mrs.Cooper.

“Because of this we opted to extend the challenge rather than leave the choice of winner to me. I put out voting papers and surprisingly the competition, which will become an annual feature, ended with a stalemate.

“Even so the three ladies will share the award and each of them are now more determined than ever to take the title next time around.”
