This week I’m posing a question that’s proving difficult to answer: ‘How do we get Doncaster people to live healthier lives?’
I started thinking about it after seeing a national report which found that our town is the second fattest in England. Over 64 per cent of adults in England are overweight or obese, with a body mass index of 25 or over. But in Doncaster the figure is over 74 per cent.
Doncaster has a long and proud history, so we must shake off this unpleasant reputation for being a borough of couch potatoes as soon as possible.
