A regional daily has launched a campaign to encourage people on its patch to become healthier.
Jenny Eastwood, who edits both titles, is among those to sign up for the campaign.
She said: “As an overweight woman I know I need to do something about my lifestyle.
“I have recently joined a slimming club and am doing some training at a gym which will really help so I am hopefully already on my way to making a change personally.
“But I can definitely do more to help my team as well as myself be more healthy.
“So my pledge is that I will buy fresh fruit for my office instead of crisps and doughnuts and also try a new walking one to one with any of my team who are up for it so we can all get out and about more.”
