Stakehill puts health and welfare first at summer fair

Date published: 09 August 2023

Rochdale residents had their wellbeing checked at Stakehill Business Improvement District’s (BID) inaugural health fair on Wednesday 26 July.

Stakehill BID covers the Stakehill Industrial Estate, and employees and members of the local community were invited to explore various health-related services and engage with professionals from different fields.

Held in the centre of the industrial estate, visitors to the fair were able to access a wide range of health screenings and consultations, including blood pressure checks.

Experts including physiotherapists, chiropractors, and wellness coaches provided valuable insights into maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

In addition to the informative stalls, the health fair also featured interactive activities and demonstrations. Visitors were able to participate in fitness challenges, receive personalised exercise recommendations, and learn about stress management techniques.

Alan Johnson, Stakehill BID Manager, said: “The event fostered a sense of community and encouraged individuals to take proactive steps towards improving their overall health. As a BID, we’re committed to creating a healthy and supportive environment within the industrial estate.

“Through events like this we’re aiming to raise awareness about the importance of health and encourage individuals to prioritise their well-being.”

UBS is the majority owner of Stakehill Industrial Estate. Since its purchase, UBS and Canmoor Asset Management have undertaken a series of initiatives to improve the estate, including full unit refurbishments when units became vacant, landscaping works and additional signage and CCTV installations.
