There were short classes of yoga, keep fit and tai chi, as well as new age kurling.

Also on offer were displays from the U3A art group and the WI, alongside card making and a floral workshop. The Upbeat group showed how it can help with recovery from heart problems or a stroke.

Nick Pringle, from Active Wellbeing, has been working with Long Melford GP Surgery and local groups to help identify people who need support.

Rosey Eade, community association secretary, said: “I would say it was a successful day and people were able to get the message across. We had between 80 and 100 people call in.”
