Halifax Awarded Purple Flag Status

Posted on

Halifax has been awarded Purple Flag status for the seventh consecutive year for being a safe, vibrant and welcoming night out. Purple Flag, like Green Flag for parks, recognises excellence in the management of the evening and night time economy. Assessors visited Halifax before Christmas where they commented on the outstanding work of the Partnership and continued work with groups including the Street Angels, Bus Oasis, White Ribbon campaign and venues in the town centre. For more information visit the website or follow Purple Flag on twitter #HXPurpleFlag

Members of the Community Safety and Resilience Team, Hollie Good and Charlotte Palethorpe, and Sgt Ben Doughty and PC Michelle Cheaney from West Yorkshire Police received the award at a ceremony hosted by Purple Flag in Chester on 15 February.

Be Clear on Cancer Campaign – 22 February to 31 March 2018

Posted on Updated on

In February 2018, Public Health England will be launching a national campaign aimed at raising awareness of the symptoms of breast cancer in women aged 70 and over.

What is Be Clear on Cancer?

Be Clear on Cancer aims to help improve early diagnosis of cancer by raising awareness of symptoms and encouraging people to see their GP without delay.

The key message promoted on TV will be: ‘1 in 3 women who get breast cancer are over 70, so don’t assume you’re past it.’ The advert also reinforces the message that finding it early makes it more treatable.

A second message, promoted via other campaign materials, will be: ‘A lump isn’t the only sign of breast cancer’ and that women over 70 should tell their doctor if they notice any changes to their breasts.

You can get breast cancer at any age but the older you are the more likely you are to get it. 1 in 3 women who get breast cancer are over 70 so older women need to know what their breasts normally look and feel like so they can spot any changes.
If breast cancer is found early it is more treatable.
