Crawley weight-loss groups’ manager gets national award


The manager of a weight-loss group which is used by more than 300 people in Maidenbower per week was recognised as one of the best in her company.

Carly Gaywood, of Olivier Road, Maidenbower, who runs Slimming World groups in the neighbourhood, said she was one of 126 consultants out of some 7,500 across the UK to receive the firm’s Gold Award on June 21.

She said: “I am delighted to have received this Gold Award.

“It’s not just a triumph for me though, this award belongs to my Maidenbower members too.

“The Maidenbower groups have really put healthy weight loss on the map in Crawley.”

The groups ran on Thursdays at 5.30pm and 7.30pm at Maidenbower Junior School and Saturdays at 8.30am and 10.30am in Maidenbower Brook School.
