A WEIGHT loss support group has celebrated its birthday in style with its own ‘Oscars’.

The EC Weigh celebrated its third year of business, led by Emma Chapman.

More than 120 members of the public meet up in Langford and Maldon to encourage a change in their eating and lifestyle habits.

A spokesman said: “The Oscars were the perfect way to mark the group’s anniversary.

“Eighteen members across the groups were presented with their prestigious award for differing achievements – some for inspirational weight losses, others for commitment, several for ‘swerving hurdles’ along the way and pure-bloody-mindedness.

“Every winner presented a motivating acceptance speech and there was laughter and there were tears.

“It’s been a very emotional couple of meetings but a joy of a week. I couldn’t be prouder of our groups.

“The Langford Lions and Cygnets prove to me every week that group support makes all the difference and the key to that support is to make it challenging, consistent and fun.”
