THE chairman of the Whitchurch Patients Group has confirmed an important health event in the town will be cancelled.

Peggy Mullock, who chairs the group, says the Keeping Well in Whitchurch Event will not be held this year because of Covid-19.

And she added that the 2021 event will be bigger, and urged patients to get their flu jab.

She said: "Whitchurch Patients Group would normally be having the Keeping Well in Whitchurch event in the Civic Centre,however, this year under the circumstances we have had to cancel.

"We will be back next year with even more organisations to help you with advice.

"Our advice for you all this year is to get flu inoculation done for patients as soon as you can, follow the guidelines and please stay safe."
