Strand by Me – Health First Roadshows

On Thursday 9th and Friday 10th June Sefton Health Champions took over the Strand By Me community shop in Bootle Strand.

We offered lots of easy read health information and gave people the opportunity to use the beer goggles. People also took part in the Sugar Game and learned  how much sugar was in every day items.

Some people also used the Eatwell Plate and learned how to have healthy diet. We even offered people juice and fruit.

There was also a health trainer there for a drop in and some of us even had our blood pressure taken!

Cheryl said ” It was great to be able to talk to people and tell them what we know”. Phil said “The  relaxed atmosphere was a great way to get people talking to us about health”.

One visitor said ” This has made me really think about what foods I eat and what changes I need to make”. Another visistor said “It’s very impressive how much information is here ” .

Everyone agreed it was a great way to get our health information out and the team are looking at ways to use it again. Watch this space and we will let you you know when we will be there again!
