EastEnders actor to open Welwyn Garden City carers event

EASTENDERS star John Bardon will be the guest of honour at a carers event this week.

On Friday John, who plays Jim Branning in the BBC soap, will be at Fitness with Fun Day for Carers at the Free Church in WGC.

The Carers Week event, organised by Crossroads Care Hertfordshire North, is to recognise and support the work of unpaid carers.

Joining John, who is cared for by wife Enda after having a stroke in 2007, is Welwyn Hatfield mayor Howard Morgan.

Both men will view a number of activities on offer, such as chair-based exercises, therapeutic massage, cosmetic pampering and facials and advice and information about carers support.
