THE Whitchurch Weight Watchers coach was honoured last month with the organisation’s highest award for helping those looking to lose weight in the area.

Adrienne Jones was awarded Weight Watchers Diamond Coach status at her meeting at the Gill Nethercott Centre. The award celebrates coaches who have provided exceptional support to members, and is only given out every two years.

In 2016, Adrienne helped her members collectively shed approximately 800 stone, with programmes tailored to each member’s age, gender, BMI, and lifestyle.

The coach, who has lost five stone herself, said: “I am thrilled.”
