A new campaign is being launched in Norwich to help people keep healthy and warm during the colder months. It coincides with the clocks going back this weekend and the onset of darker evenings.
Public Health experts believe that in Norwich there are between 60 and 80 more deaths during the winter than the rest of the year. Almost all were older people and most of them had a long term condition such as heart or breathing problems.
Households in Sewell ward, Sprowston Central ward and Town Close ward will receive ‘top tips’ about how reduce the risk of becoming ill – because those areas of the city have more winter deaths than others.
