The Rotary Club of Bridlington has organised the blood pressure testing day.

Bridlington Rotary Club will show it always has its finger on the pulse at an event to be held this weekend.

The club’s annual blood pressure testing day will take place in The Promenades shopping centre this Saturday, June 1 from 10am onwards.

Honorary Rotary club member Dr Abu Nasar and his team of nurses will be in attendance to administer the tests all day.

All are welcome to have their blood pressure taken, but according to Dr Nasar it is most important for people over the age of 50 with a family history of stroke, heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes to come forward for this check up.

Hundreds of people turned out to check up on their health at Bridlington Rotary Club’s annual blood pressure awareness day last summer.

Also in attendance at 
Saturday’s event will be new Bridlington mayor Coun Terry Dixon, one of his first official engagements, and he will be at the Promenades from 10am onwards.

Bridlington Rotary Club president Keith Lowe will also be there on the day, alongside a number of Rotary club colleagues.

Rotary Club press officer Paul Atkinson said: “It is always a well attended event, and we once again thank Dr Abu Nasar and his team for coming out and carrying out the tests.

“It gets more popular every year, and it is always surprising just how many people who come along and get tested end up getting referred to their GP for further tests.

“It is the club trying to do its bit for the health of Bridlington.”
