The remaining sessions will be 8th & 22nd February and 8th & 22nd of March.  We are in the Market 9.30-4.30pm.


The stand is manned by two nurses who can book allocated slots for visitors or people can drop in.


We offer free, confidential cancer awareness information on spotting signs and symptoms, screening and lifestyle information.


Four out of ten cancers could be prevented, so we offer support on stopping smoking, reducing alcohol, eating a healthy diet and weight, being active and awareness of sun and uv.


We can perform free BMI and waist measurements and Smokelyser tests.
