Healthfest, organised by the borough council and jointly funded with local health bosses, will be in its new location of Market Place on Saturday, September 22.

It will take place from 11am to 3pm, and will have numerous stalls proving information, advice and activities, as well as sports and games, live music and dancing.

New for this year, Bebo will also be providing free samples of healthy smoothies and soups for attendees to try.

Councillor Fiona Thomson, Executive Member for Governance and Public Health, said: “Our HealthFest events are always popular, and we know that lots of residents take away some really good tips and advice on how to make small changes to their lifestyles to become that little bit healthier.

“There will be all sorts of free fun activities so it’s a great chance to try something new.”
