Enquires whether it may be possible to raise awareness of a local research study to your parishioners.

Our study is looking to recruit overweight men and women aged 50-75 years, to study if every day blueberry consumption for 6-months improves health. We are particularly interested in markers of health related to the development of heart disease and type 2 diabetes and we hope that a positive study outcome would help us to give better advice to the public about how to reduce their risk of developing these diseases. This study is being conducted at the Norwich Medical School (University of East Anglia; UEA) and is ethics committee approved.

Any assistance in raising awareness of this potentially important study would be very much appreciated and we would welcome the opportunity to discuss the study further with you, or your parishioners.

We will be recruiting volunteers until January 2016 and all study visits will be done at the convenience of the participants. Travel expenses to, and from, the University will be reimbursed and participants will receive an inconvenience payment based on the amount of their study involvement.

If you wish to know more about the study, or would like an electronic version of the poster or the newsletter paragraph, then please contact us either by email (circles-study@uea.ac.uk) or phone (01603 592424).

Yours sincerely,

Dr Peter Curtis    Dr Lindsey Berends       Dr Vera van der Velpen


Once the summer arrives, the noise of outdoor life increases immensely: music appears to be played louder and people may speak louder.

Age UK Norfolk extends Home Support and Care Service to North Norfolk residents

Older residents in North Norfolk can now enjoy longer periods of independence and companionship as Age UK Norfolk’s Home Support and Care service extends its network of SupportGivers.

The Home Support and Care service is designed to help older residents who are still living at home with anything from household tasks to shopping and offers friendly companionship so that family members are able to spend more quality time with their loved ones and less time on chores. The Home Support and Care service, which operates as a social enterprise, was previously only available in Norwich and Kings Lynn, but has now been extended to cover the whole of Norfolk. Home Support and Care SupportGivers are available for regular or occasional visits from as little as one hour up to eight hours a day, five days a week.

Home Support and Care Manager, Josie Moore says:

“As a trusted local charity Age UK Norfolk has over 65 years experience in providing services for older people across Norfolk. We are proud to help clients to live independently – giving them more opportunities to socialise and enjoy later life. We are delighted to now be able to extend our Home Support and Care service to residents in North Norfolk and hope that we can help to enhance the lives of the local older community.”
