There really is so much to do

Marden is hosting a health fair later this month.

The day will be light-hearted and fun with a range of exhibitors and as many active and interactive displays as possible.

It will also provide visitors with an insight into the availability of organisations providing guidance and support. Appropriately healthy refreshments will be available from the WI.

Set up by Marden Medical Centre’s patient reference group, it will be held on Saturday, April 26, at the Memorial Hall in Goudhurst Road.

There will be no charge for entry and a crèche will be available, while a stand will be run by Marden Children’s Centre for younger visitors.

The fair will be supported by doctors and staff from the medical centre. They will be on hand to discuss general health issues and demonstrate how they have taken their own advice with a reprise of their participation in the London to Brighton bicycle ride in support of the British Heart Foundation.
