Shoppers respond to free Body MOT

Local residents warmed to the idea of a free Body MOT and lifestyle advice when Amber Valley Borough Council’s Community Movers project recently staged a ‘wellbeing event’ at the Ripley Co-operative store on Derby Road. The event was sponsored by Ripley Co-op.

The event had the support of a number of organisations who attended to give advice and support to the local community. Among these were P3 Amber Trust Mental Health, Alzheimers/Dementia Society, Community Transport CT4TC, Derbyshire Core Victim Support, Air Ambulance, Citizens Advice, strictly No falling, Derbyshire Carer's Association, Derbyshire Healthwatch, British Nordic Walking UK, Dementia UK, Hearing Help, Citizen's Advice and Derbyshire Fire and Rescue who came along with their fire engine and crew.

The event was very well attended and supported by the Co-op staff and with everyone in good festive spirits.

Over 40 residents took advantage of the free Body MOT and received lifestyle advice from health referral staff from Ripley Leisure Centre. Many also accepted the opportunity to try Nordic Walking.

The Borough Council regularly runs these events across the area to help get more people active and to check their health and wellbeing. If you would like more information on these events coming up in your area contact
