Co-op moots wellness day

The Co-operative Group is considering holding a health and wellness day for its 3,000 head office staff later this year. A similar event held in 2005, would provide a model for the event. The 2005 wellness day included advice on issues such as smoking and weight loss, and provided facilities for blood pressure and cholesterol tests. A spokesman said: “It has been popular in the past and it is just part of the activity that the sports and social club organises.”
