Dementia carers are being urged to head to the Millhouse pub in Cinnamon Brow on Tuesday afternoons. Everyone is welcome to the weekly event from 2 to 5pm which gives 'carers the opportunity to relax'.

Cinnamon Brow resident David Hayes, who has been supporting the initiative after his wife Catherine was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in February 2009, added: "We hope it will be a success and word will spread to other pubs in the area."

“If you’re eligible for the free flu vaccine, get it now” is the latest message from health services in Warrington.

Public Health England have reported an increase in flu in the community and people are urged to get their vaccine now from their GP if they have not had it already.

Those who have long-term health conditions and those who are pregnant are at greater risk of developing complications as a result of flu and are entitled to a free jab. Children aged 2-4, all over 65’s, and main registered carers can also get the jab for free.

Flu is a highly infectious disease with symptoms that come on very suddenly. Healthy individuals usually recover in two to seven days but for some, the disease can lead to hospitalisation, permanent disability or even death.
