Unhealthy Sunderland High Street

Post by Crawford »

Unhealthy Sunderland High Street

Apparently, Sunderland has the 5th most unhealthy High Street in the UK according to the Royal Society for Public Health.
Grimsby is the worst, followed by Walsall, Blackpool and Stoke-on-Trent.
Then comes Sunderland.
Its all about unhealthy eating with plenty of fast food shops.
But it involves things like the amount of empty shops and 'bargain' shops including betting shops.

Good news for Edinburgh as they topped the league for having the healthiest High Street.
Second best was Canterbury, then Taunton, Shrewsbury and Cheltenham.

So there you have it folks, we have an unhealthy High Street.
Who do you blame?

Its a combination of things that are not so good.
Like betting shops all over the place and there are.
Like charity shops all over and there are.
Also boarded up shops which we have a load of.
Yes fast food shops as well.
Look at Pallion at night - that place is a pizza lovers paradise.

Let us all rejoice in our state of fatness.
At least we are happier that the 'healthy' areas and that's what matters 8-)
