My Citizen & Echo column: Whatever you do, don’t use the word ‘fat’

Welcome to “Monday is the new Saturday” where I pop the link to my Weekend magazine column ‘The Last Word’ from the Gloucestershire Citizen and Echo…

My Weekend column on Saturday was all about kids, obesity and the use of the word ‘fat’. Oh, and those McDonalds Happy Meals. I’ve stuck the column on my Citizen column page here so you can have a read.

You can also catch my columns each week on the NEW Citizen and Echo Weekend website.

The Citizen & Echo Weekend magazine comes out every Saturday.


**I’m taking a break from my Citizen and Echo column writing, so this will be my last for a while**


Gazette column: Solve both speeding & obesity – walk like Laurie Lee

It’s “Thursday Thoughts” where I post my weekly Gazette newspaper column to my blog so you can have a read…

This week my column for the Gloucestershire Gazette is about Laurie Lee and how, we can take a leaf out of his book and walk more instead, that way we can reduce speeding and obesity some 80 years after the author was born.

To read it, simply click to my Column page.

What do you think? Is walking more the solution? Or is today’s society just too fast and demanding for walking? Let me know.
