Look after yourself this winter with a helping hand from Drake Circus

Plymouth’s premier shopping destination is offering a week of expert advice on how to look after yourself following a season of festive indulgence.

Drake Circus is holding its popular event from Monday 21st January, with health experts and fitness gurus on hand to offer advice on how to take care of your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing during the winter period.

There will be free interactive events in the main atrium including Mini Health MOTs and blood pressure tests, as well as information and advice on mental health to help you start 2019 on the right foot.

Drake Circus Centre Director Greg Lumley said: “This event has always been popular and it’s great to be able to provide our shoppers with a little bit of help and advice as they strive to get fit and feel great.

At this time of year, we wanted to offer a helping hand to shoppers looking to begin a happy, healthy New Year.”
