A COLLEGE has invited the local community to attend its free health and support pop up event. 

Staff and students from AECC University College have invited the public to the event on March 18 - 28. 

The event is the first of its kind by the college and includes free mental, physical, social care, lifestyle, and exercise health support for all the local community to access.

Daniel Heritage, chiropractic clinic lead at AECC University College, said: "At AECC University College, we offer a range of clinics to support our local community. Being based on Boscombe high street for these two weeks will allow us to support even more members of the community, offering free health and support services.

“This pop-up aims to act as a ‘one-stop shop’ to allow people to access health and support advice all under one roof. We are aware that poor health can impact significantly on people’s work and can therefore have major impacts on local economic growth and productivity."

The event promises to offer a range of free health and support services, including both practical health tests and interactive sessions. 

This includes musculoskeletal triage, a service to assess muscle or joint problems, free foot checks, NHS health checks for those aged 40-47, blood pressure checks, simulation area and a community support hub. 

Members of the public can drop in from 10am - 4pm at Boscombe Arts Depot and those interest can register so via the pop-ups Eventbrite page.
