Come and join the Flu Fighters! That is the call going out to people in the Ribble Valley to keep themselves well as winter sets in.

Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust is encouraging residents to get their flu jabs to help prevent the spread of the virus and as part of a joint “Stay Well This Winter” campaign between NHS England and Public Health England.

The campaign encourages people to be aware of the simple things that can be done to make sure everyone is safe and healthy and is supported by some well-known celebrities including Barbara Windsor and Ainsley Harriott.

Measures include keeping your house heated to at least 18°F, seeking pharmacists advice at first signs of illness and top of the list, getting your flu vaccination.
