Visit Charnwood Council in the EHB tomorrow for your chance to win prizes

Charnwood Borough Council will be in the Edward Herbert Building tomorrow promoting 'stay safe' messages to students.

Representatives from the Council will be on hand between 11am - 2.30pm providing information and advice on tattoos, shisha and sunbeds.

We all know the risks involved with smoking, but the negative effects of smoking shisha are commonly disregarded.

Did you know that smoking shisha can be as damaging, addictive and as dangerous as cigarettes?

Or, that many sunbeds give out greater doses of UV rays that the midday tropical sun causing skin cancer?

Or, that unregistered tattooists called ‘scratchers’ are operating in your area?


Visit the stand and find out how you could be making more informed decisions.

There is a short survey which can be completed on the day or online  offering you the opportunity to win a free spray tan courtesy of Burleigh Springs Spa.

Entry closes at midnight on 19 May.

Also attending the event are the Food Safety team promoting their ‘Spread the word, not the germs’ campaign.

As part of national Food Safety Week, this year’s campaign is aimed at cutting the number of cases of the food poisoning bacteria campylobacter, linked to raw chicken, in half by the end of this year.

Fill in a simple food safety quiz and you could win a spa day a Burleigh Springs, 2 Odeon cinema tickets or 2 Flix cinema tickets.
