Healthy Valley Campaign to focus on Type 2 diabetes

21 August 2019

Diabetes consultant Dr Adrian Scott will be taking part in a special “Healthy Valley” campaign next month in a series of events being held across Stocksbridge.

Dr Scott will be delivering a talk at Stocksbridge Library at 10am on Saturday 7th September and will also be joining a team of volunteers later in the day in a special information stall at the Fox Valley Farmer’s Market from 11am through to 3pm.

The event has been organised by local groups including the Community Health Forum and Stocksbridge Town Council to focus on good health and raise awareness of the dangers and risk factors around Type 2 Diabetes.

Throughout the day on Saturday September 7th there will be Healthy Valley events across the town aimed at promoting good health.

As well as the talk at Stocksbridge Library there will be a Type 2 diabetes testing station at Stocksbridge Community Leisure Centre as well as an organised walk in nearby Oxley Park.

The day also coincides with the Fox Valley Farmer’s Market and to mark the Healthy Valley theme the line up of local produce will be joined by a pop-up diabetes information stall manned by hospital volunteers as well as Dr Scott.

Kayleigh Marron, Events Manager at Fox Valley said: “We are delighted to be taking part in the Healthy Valley campaign and to be welcoming Dr Scott and his team to Fox Valley on September 7th during our monthly Farmer’s Market and focussing on these important health issues.”

The Healthy Valley Campaign takes place at Stocksbridge Leisure Centre, Stocksbridge Library and Fox Valley throughout Saturday September 7th.
