Jane Harrad-Roberts says:

"I had my reservations at first because of my hectic lifestyle but I am so glad that I took the plunge and joined. I really shoe horned exercise into my lifestyle.

"I now feel that I make the most of my free time and it gives me more energy for everything else."

A glowing example of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, Jane has gradually lost weight and is maintaining her new ideal weight. A glowing example of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, Jane has gradually lost weight and is maintaining her new ideal weight.

It is hardly surprising that the region rumored to spend the most money on champagne per year – Cheshire – responds to a recession by having more weddings!

The recession appears to have had an unexpected affect on local couples with a suggested upturn in the number of couples tying the knot.

Local wedding venue Doubletree by Hilton Chester says the number of weddings are on the increase in Cheshire and its bulging wedding diary is proof of that.

A staggering 41 weddings have already taken place at Doubletree by Hilton Chester since January, 34 more than for the same period last year.

A spokesman from the Cheshire West and Cheshire registry office said: “Comparative statistics show that there is a 5% increase in the number of weddings at approved premises and registry offices within West Cheshire and Chester in the first quarter of this financial year, compared with the same quarter last year.
"Although the results do not take into account religious weddings and are tentative until a full comparison can be made at the end of this financial year, an increase in weddings would be beneficial to local businesses and tourism.”

Attracted by the beautiful Cheshire countryside and benefits of marrying in a historical city, couples from outside of the area also come to Cheshire for their nuptials.

Doubletree by Hilton Chester Wedding Coordinator Jemma Green says: “The last couple of years have seen a total overhaul of the former Hoole Hall, transforming it into one of the areas leading wedding venues.

“Following the changes we were expecting to see an increase in the number of weddings but our expectations have been far surpassed and we are delighted!
We are almost fully booked to the end of this year and are taking bookings as far in advance as 2014.
The upturn is great for Cheshire businesses and the local hospitality industry.”

The average cost of a wedding in the UK this year is estimated at £21,901, according to Condé Nast Brides Magazine. And according to a recent survey by Direct Line, guests spend an average of £215 each to attend a wedding and stay for the weekend. You can certainly see why the wedding industry has a great affect on tourism and the local economy.

Doubletree by Hilton Chester will be holding a wedding open day on Sunday July 18, 12pm to 4pm, to give couples the chance to look around. The Abbey Suite will be set up for a civil ceremony and the Ballroom for a wedding breakfast, allowing couples to see the wedding venue at its best.

Couples who book there wedding at Doubletree by Hilton Chester within a week of the event will receive a complimentary luxury couple’s spa day.

Teen fit academy improves health of local teenagers

The region's leading health club has launched a new initiative that is encouraging more 12 to 15 year olds to take regular exercise.

Called 'The Teen Fit Academy' the scheme has been launched at theclub at DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House in Congresbury and has already been a big success with over 50 children signing up to take part.

With use of the gym unsupervised restricted to those 16 or above, the idea is to allow teenagers access to use the range of equipment at specified times once they have completed the induction course.

This includes guidance on the etiquette of using the gym such as use of towels and how to use the variety of cardio vascular equipment in a safe and correct manner.

Once they have completed the induction they are then presented with a certificate of induction which gives them access to the award-winning gym, on their own, at specified times.

Already a big success, many of those who have signed up are already seeing the benefits with many parents saying that since joining the scheme their children’s concentration and motivation has improved.

Tom Horton, fitness manager at theclub said:
"This is a great scheme that not only encourages those between the ages of 12 to 15 to take more exercise but gives them access to the gym and most of the equipment.

"We do not encourage the use of weights but show the children how to improve their health and well being using the cardio vascular machines, body weight exercises and other gym equipment such as Swiss balls and medicine balls.

"The response has been fantastic with over 50 teens graduated so far and there is a waiting list for a place on the induction days."
