The Dunmow University of the Third Age (U3A) hosted a successful information day on health and wellbeing on March 27.

Town mayor, Councillor Barrie Easter, opened the event and members of the public were able to visit Foakes Hall to see demonstrations from Nordic walking and gentle exercise groups.

Health and safety professionals set up stalls to give advice and checks whilst talks included fire safety, fraud prevention and healthy eating.

U3A member, Jennifer Versey, said: “There was a real buzz as people dropped in to chat and learn what support is available from various organisations in our area to promote a healthy lifestyle and protect yourself, whatever age you are. The U3A, with a membership of more than 550 in the Dunmow area, promotes both mental and physical well-being from retirement into old age through its many groups and social activities.”
