Time to kick booze into touch say health bosses

Clacton and Frinton Gazette: Time to kick alcohol say health bosses Time to kick alcohol say health bosses

TIPPLERS in Tendring are being encouraged to bung out the booze for January.

Essex County Council is urging people to sign up to Dry January and kick-start a healthy 2014.

The national campaign to stay booze-free for the first month of the year is being run by charity Alcohol Concern, supported by the NHS and other health organisations.

County Hall health boss Ann Naylor said: “If you can take a break from alcohol, you could lose a little weight, have nicer skin, feel more energised to do other things and save yourself some money at the same time.”
