Hollywood or Bust - Walk of Fame - Its Nearly Here
This looks a great day out - what a great place Grafham Water is - and will raise funds for a very worthy cause. Those smashing people at Hollywood or Bust are holding a Walk of Fame - although push-bikes and running are also encouraged - at Grafham Water on Saturday the 6th May 2017. The event is in support of The Woodlands Breast Cancer Support Group. All the details and info are on the poster, and we reckon that this is going to be fun. You don't want to miss this and the contacts are as below, or you can happily leave a message on this page.

KYBD - A Busy Day at The Corn Exchange
What an encouraging morning, when in partnership with the Stroke Association we provided blood pressure tests to nearly eighty local residents, and gave advice and information, (and cups of tea), to a whole lot more than that.
Our thanks really must go firstly to Jill Hyde and Rtn Beccy Roberts who undertook all the testing, as well as providing expert advice and counselling. Although the majority of residents who were checked were in the 60-85 age range, with four above 85, we also saw a significant number of younger people seeking advice, which was most encouraging.
Well done to organiser Rtn Sue Duma and her team of Gill Knight, President Mike Raettig and Rotarians Eileen Knight, Sally Heffer, Fiona Stocker, Bill Knight, Simon Townend, Ian Pemberton, Iain Martin, John Lowey, Ken Millard, Adrian Acton and Alan Ward.
Anyone interested in obtaining further info on stroke awareness can find help on the Stroke Association's website www.stroke.org.uk

Stroke Association and Rotary International - Help To Conquer Stroke in St Ives. Saturday 22nd April at The Corn Exchange
The Stroke Association and Rotary International are joining forces to help raise awareness of one of the biggest risk factors for stroke: high blood pressure. We are inviting residents in St Ives to take a moment to have a free blood pressure test on Saturday 22nd April from 10.00am to 2.00pm at The Corn Exchange in St Ives.
Over half of all strokes can be caused by high blood pressure and it is estimated that over five million people across the UK don’t realise they have the condition. Local Rtn Sue Duma says that Know Your Blood Pressure Day, on 22 April 2017, is all about raising awareness of the link between high blood pressure and stroke. We are supporting the Stroke Association with this blood pressure event and will be hosting free blood pressure tests at The Corn Exchange. Stroke strikes every five minutes in the UK, but with events like these, we hope to change this. A blood pressure test is quick and painless, and it could save your life.”
Further Alexis Wieroniey, Deputy Director for Policy and Influencing at the Stroke Association, said: “High blood pressure often has no symptoms, and it’s much more common than people think. That’s why we’re urging as many St Ives residents as possible to take a moment and have theirs checked at The St Ives Rotary Club's event. A blood pressure check only takes a moment, and it’s such a simple way to reduce your risk of a stroke.”
