Neston Angels promote health and wellbeing at a Winter Health Fair

30 November 2015

Residents had health checks, information and advice when they visited Neston Angels’ Winter Health Fair which had displays from 18 local and national organisations. 

Age UK, Alzheimer’s Society, Neston Library, and many more gathered under one roof at Neston Town Hall to give out information, guides and equipment, and sign people up to services.

Health checks were carried out by Little Neston Surgery Staff, and visitors enjoyed free tea and cakes and reflexology tasters, as well as gaining information on a range of issues, including energy saving, benefits and carers support.

The event was organised by Neston Angels as part of Keeping Well in West Cheshire, with the support of many different partners.

Cheshire West and Chester Councillor Louise Gittins, Cabinet Member for Culture Leisure and Wellbeing said: “The Health Fair illustrates the number of local organisations that are available to increase the well-being of local and vulnerable residents living in the area.

 “This event has been a great one-stop shop for both residents and the organisations who attended. All of the exhibitors said they find the health fairs really useful for reaching large numbers of residents directly to provide all kinds of information.

“The event was a success and a great opportunity for residents to see the wide ranging information and support that is available in the local area from groups and organisations that encourage people to live independent and healthy lives.” For more information on Neston Angels, contact CAN Group on 0151 353 8638.
