Stop Smoking

NO SMOKING DAY – THE OUTCOME

For No Smoking Day on 11 March, Bedford Borough’s Stop Smoking team were out and about, reaching out to residents with a desire to quit. The team worked collaboratively with bpha, Tesco (in Riverfield Drive), Bedford Central Library, Children’s Centres and Bedford Hospital. As a result, a total of 11 people signed up on the day to stop smoking.

 

Cllr Colleen Atkins, Executive Member for Adults’ Services and Community Wellbeing at Bedford Borough Council, said: “People should never give up giving up! We are always willing to help support individuals who are keen to turn their back on smoking. It’s never too late to try. Most of us are now extremely aware of the health risks caused by smoking and this habit is financially expensive too.”

 

People are invited to check out Public Health’s new re-launch of their Smoke Free Bedfordshire website at http://smokefreebedfordshire.co.uk/ Those that sign-up online, will receive a free ‘Quit Kit’.

 

If you would like to talk to a member of Bedford Borough’s Stop Smoking Team, telephone 0800 013 0553 (and select option 2).
