A SERVICE that aims to help people make healthier lifestyle choices has been launched in Bury St Edmunds.

Live Well Suffolk is free, funded by NHS Suffolk, and offers users stop smoking services, adult and child weight management, Alive ‘N’ Kicking schemes for young people, healthy eating advice and classes and alcohol awareness advice.

Director Tim Roberts said: “We’re looking forward to getting out into Bury and helping people take the steps they need to live healthier lives. We aren’t here to pressure anyone, but to give those who ask for it health improvement programmes tailored to their needs.”

Venues that will deliver the service in Bury include the Volunteer Centre, in Whiting Street, the Anselm Community Centre, Abbeycroft Leisure and Asda.

In the New Year, there will be free taster sessions in zumba and free drop-in stop smoking group therapy sessions.
