A walking group for mothers and children was launched in Manea today.

The group is the idea of health visitor Jo Smith, of New Queen Street Surgery, Whittlesey.

She said: “There is a feeling that Manea is quite an isolated area so it makes sense to do something to try and help mothers there.

“We hope the community will take ownership of the group and take over its running.”

For more information about the group call 01733 704466 or e-mail jsmith100@nhs.net
