Jean, the branch organiser of a slimming club is frustrated, as usual, by the late arrival of her charges. Even when the motley collection of members have assembled, it is clear that the slimming aspect of their weekly meetings is the last thing on their minds! The arrival of a timid new member, together with Jean’s revelation of grim news from the club’s Head Office, forces them all to re-evaluate their reasons for trying to slim in the first place. Whilst their resolve is hardly strengthened, they are forced to dream up a scheme that will fulfil everyone’s wishes whilst leaving honour intact.
