Shadsworth Leisure Centre is hosting a free health event this Monday, September 15.
Taking place from 1pm-7pm, there will be plenty of activities on the day including Free NHS Health Checks, taster sessions and competitions.
Health checks are open to people aged 35- 74 who either live, work, have a GP or are educated in the borough. They can help pick up on any risks associated with heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease, although you must not be diagnosed with any of these conditions before having one.
Anyone receiving one on the day will be entered into a draw for a one, two or three month leisure centre membership. Call (01254) 682037 to book an appointment.
Taster sessions will also be available on the day to promote fitness classes, as well as gym competitions. A weigh-in will take place with the person losing the most weight between September and October winning a prize. Personal exercise programme cards will also be available too.
