People could book themselves in for health MOTs and flu jabs during the first ever health and wellbeing fair hosted by Cranfield and Marston Patient Participation Group.

Visitors also picked up healthy living tips and learnt about exercises such as Nordic walking at the village hall event on Saturday, September 12.

Plans for the new village surgery were also on display and people could give their views on what services they think should be on offer there.

Posters created by Year 4 pupils from Church End Lower School in Marston Moretaine showed what they think is important about a healthy lifestyle.

North East Beds MP Alistair Burt was there, along with chairman of Central Beds Council Councillor David Bowater.

The patient group’s chair Rina Persaud said she hopes the event will be an annual occasion.

Refreshments were organised by the Cranfield Women’s Institute and the Trefoil Guild, while the Co-op in Cranfield donated the tea, coffee and sugar.

The £150 raised at the fair will go towards helping the group to run future events, with first aid courses already being planned for the new year.
