Andover's Rotarians were out and about in the centre of the town on Saturday, inviting people to have their blood pressure taken by St Johns Ambulance nurses in the Rendez-Vous in Union St. It was part of a campaign to raise awareness of strokes, and to invite people in a for a free reading to see if they were at risk.
Local MP Sir George Young popped in, and was re-assured by the readings.
"I had just done two hours of Advice Bureau in the Guild Hall, so my stress level was higher than it would normally have been. Nonetheless, I was within the acceptable range."
"I congratulate the Rotary Club and St John's Ambulance on this initiative."
