Get your blood pressure checked at free events

Rotarians are encouraging people to know their blood pressure in a bid to prevent strokes.

Two events will be held in Buxton this week by the Rotary Club, in association with the Stroke Association, to offer free blood pressure measurements to residents and visitors to Buxton.

They will take place at The Dome on Friday April 19, from 10am to 1pm, and at Spring Gardens Centre on Saturday April 20, from 9am to 12pm.

Health professionals from in and around Buxton will be available.
