Hosted by the East Cambridgeshire Health and Wellbeing Partnership, the day featured demonstrations and guidance from local businesses and organisations to encourage people to make positive impacts on their health.

Councillor Joshua Schumann, chairman, said: “We are thrilled with the turn out for this year’s event and that there are so many people who are interested in making steps to a healthier and happier way of life.

“The passion from partners and organisations involved shows the vast array of quality services available to residents.

“I hope that those who visited the event will be spurred on to set their own health ambitions and take up the opportunity to use some of our stallholders.”
