Challenge Your Supermarket Shopping Habits

A supermarket tour initiative could help you make, and stick to, your healthy eating New Year resolutions.

Crawley Wellbeing advisors will be visiting the town’s shops in January and February offering free tours with advice, tips and ideas for healthy shopping and eating habits.

The tours will include the basics of understanding food labels, and choosing food for a healthy and balanced diet.

Councillor Nigel Boxall said that Crawley Wellbeing’s supermarket tours offer an opportunity to see healthy eating advice in action in the place we make most of our food decisions.

And if you’ve got any other New Year’s resolutions – maybe giving up smoking – they can offer you advice, tips and access to services.

Visit crawley.westsussexwellbeing.org.uk for more information.

To find out when we are visiting your local supermarket, and to book your place on a tour, call 01293 585317.

Weekend Local Football Review

Crystal Palace acquitted themselves well at Eastlands losing by just a single goal on Saturday in their premier league encounter with table toppers Manchester City. Other results ensured that the Eagles enter the new year outside the relegation zone — on goal difference.

Crawley Town enjoyed a 1 nil victory against bottom of league one Notts County at the Broadfield Stadium yesterday afternoon. Mark Connelly scored in the 66th minute for the reds.

In the local derby, Merstham beat Redhill 3 – 2 on Saturday, while Three Bridges were held at home by Walton Casuals in a 1 all draw.

In the only other local match to go ahead, Horley Town suffered yet another defeat, going down 5 -3 at Epsom and Ewell.

Sports Update

Local Sports News

Crystal Palace manager Tony Pulis was jubilant as the Eagles climbed out of the relegation zone following a 1-0 victory  on Boxing Day afternoon at Aston Villa. An injury time goal from sub Dwight Gayle secured all three points which leave Palace in 17th place in the Premier League on goal difference. A tougher test on Saturday 28th December though – when they travel to Eastlands to play championship contenders Manchester City.

It was a miserable afternoon for Crawley Town as they succumbed 2 nil at home to MK Dons. On Sunday 29th December,  the Reds face Notts County at The Broadfield Staudium, where they’ll be without Billy Clarke, who was sent off late on in the match.

Many local matches were affected by the weather, which is also expected to prevent many games over the weekend. Stay tuned to Saturday Sport on Susy 103.4 every Saturday afternoon from 2pm for all the local sports news.
