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.
