Leicester to promote healthier lifestyles among residents

By Emily Barker

An event to help promote healthier lifestyles within the Leicester community has been announced for this Saturday (MAR30).

The Leicester City Clinical Commissioning Group event will run from 10am to 3pm in three locations – the Cossington Street Sports Centre, Belgrave Health Centre and Belgrave Library.


Cossington Street Sports Centre will be hosting exercise sessions and refreshments, but patrons can also learn more about mental health services, carer support, voluntary organisations and help for older people.

Belgrave Health Centre will be offering blood pressure checks, weight and height measurements, and general health and well-being advice.

Belgrave Library will be used as a digital hub, where residents will be able to learn how to book doctors appointments and request repeat prescriptions online.
