RUMOUR has it that our so called 'cash-strapped' NHS is funding golf lessons for porky citizens.

I’ve tried golf. I didn’t like it much - it ruined a good walk.

I do, though, very much like hiking and it keeps me relatively slim and healthy.

I could, however,do with a new pair of boots and a dog to keep me motivated and on the move.

Do you think the NHS might cough up?
