This month saw National No Smoking Day and to tie in with this, the Constituency has run two Smokefree sessions – one in Quinton and one in Bartley Green.
Residents were given information about how unhealthy smoking is, and also how expensive! Smoking a pack a day costs over £150 a month – that’s an awful lot of money to be going up in smoke!
Visitors to the smokefree caravan which was situated in Simmons Drive, and Monmouth Road, were signposted to local health centres if they decided to give up and need help such as Nicotine Replacement Therapies or help from an advisor.
