Stroke Awareness Day - 2017 is on Saturday 22nd April

Each year in April our Club organises a day on the market place where anyone can have their blood pressure checked by qualified medical people. This is free. The aim is to make people aware of any possible high blood pressure which could lead to a stroke.
