Residents in the Three Parishes area are being invited to an event offering advice and support on managing arthritis.

The Community Resource Wise and Well team is hosting Arthritis Awareness from 10am to 12.30pm on Wednesday 25 May at St Martins Centre, Overton Road, St Martins.

The event is free to attend but places need to be booked in advance.

Activities include a talk from Michael Delahey, a clinical physiotherapist specialising in Rheumatology at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital (RJAH), and a discussion on healthy eating to help arthritis.

There will also be gentle exercise taster session led by Lisa Perry, Rheumatology Therapy Support Worker at RJAH.

While anyone is welcome to attend, the sessions are aimed at those who have been diagnosed with arthritis, as well as those who care for people with the condition.

Community Resource Development Officer Lindsey Stirton said: “Arthritis is a common condition that affects people of all ages and can have a big impact on their day-to-day lives.

“We’re offering the opportunity for people to come along, speak to the experts and hopefully get some guidance on how to manage their condition. I hope people in the Three Parishes area will support this event.”

For more information or to book your place, please contact Lindsey Stirton on or phone 01743 360641.

Arthritis Awareness is part of a series of information events that have been commissioned by the Three Parishes Big Local programme, with support from Shropshire Council.
