Know Your Numbers Week is Back

14 August 2019

Know Your Numbers week is back again this September, and the Up and Active team will be out and about offering free blood pressure checks.

This year’s Know Your Numbers! Week is all about knowing your blood pressure numbers to live a long and healthy life. Many of us are living well into our 70s, 80s and 90s. With so much life to look forward to, we want these years to be healthy and happy for everyone.

The key to a healthy later life is in keeping ourselves fit and healthy for as long as possible, making the most of the support available along the way. There are many things that we can do such as stopping smoking, watching what you eat and drink, and being active. But one of the simplest is knowing your blood pressure numbers. Once you Know Your Numbers! you can get support to bring your blood pressure under control and prevent these diseases.

The Pendle Up and Active team will be down at the ACE Centre, Cross St, Nelson, BB9 7NN on the 5th September 2019 from 10-3pm offering free Blood Pressure tests. Anyone who is interested or would just like more info please come down on the day and speak to a member of the team.
