The Mayor for High Peak, Cllr. Tony Kemp and Member of Parliament for the High Peak Andrew Bingham, both showed their support for Rotary Club of Buxton’s "Know Your Blood Pressure" days.

They were among some 205 people who had their blood pressures measured in Buxton (114 at the University of Derby Buxton Dome on the 11th April, and 91 in Spring Gardens Precinct on the 12th April).

Of the people screened, 3 were advised to seek urgent help from their own doctors and 48 were told to contact their doctors routinely because of readings considered higher than normal.

This is the eleventh year in a row that the Rotary Club of Buxton has teamed up with the Stroke Association, offering free blood pressure checks to some 1700 people over that time.
