HEALTHY eating will be on the menu in Woodbridge in October as businesses and shops join together for the town's second themed month.
Town centre coordinator Marion Wells has a variety of different themes lined up to help promote the town in the coming months. This month's focus has been on local history, with numerous events including a quiz trail around town.
Next month the emphasis will be on healthy eating, especially the need to eat five fruit or vegetable portions a day.
Local businesses will be given a chance to highlight their commitment to good food and local produce, while residents and visitors will glean helpful advice on the benefits of a good diet and how to cook and grow healthy food.

Dr Wells said: "The events and promotions in Woodbridge this month make the link between the healthy eating campaigns and the food people buy, either in food stores or when they are eating out.
"Woodbridge has many businesses supplying food and this is a real celebration of what they offer."

A long list of events and competitions have been arranged to encourage as many of the local population to join in as possible.
Many local restaurants will be offering specially designed healthy menus, while food promotions and competitions will be offered in many of the shops.
There will also be costumed characters visiting the town during the course of the month to hand out free apples as part of National Apple Day.
Dr Wells said: "So many people have come forward and volunteered events for the programme. This is a real community celebration."
