There will also be details of health checks, fitness information, with a mobile gym and Cambridge United in attendance, and the Edge café will be there offering links to other organisations and charities that support drug and alcohol support.

Arts and crafts will be on offer, and there will be free food available.

Among the talks on women’s health and wellbeing will be discussions about cancer screening and awareness, and a keynote talk will be delivered at 12.30pm by Dr Susanna Unsworth, a women’s health and menopause specialist, who will discuss the perimenopause and ways women can help themselves. Healthy walking activities are also planned

“The aim is very much community engagement in health and wellbeing issues, by holding this in a community place,” said Dr Osman Bhatti. “One outcome we will be following up is to see how much we can increase local cancer screening.”
