Swaffham mayor Paul Darby was among the patients getting themselves checked during a diabetes and health awareness day held in the town last Thursday.

The annual event is organised by the Swaffham Lions, who say more than 80 people have been referred to doctors in the three years of the event after being found to be at risk of the disease.

Visitors were also able to have their blood pressure checked and learn more about other health initiatives.
