Pop-ups hosted by a variety of health and wellbeing businesses will take place at different venues across the town, starting on Saturday, January 20.

Roger Lewin, owner of Knutsford Hearing Centre, said: “People often live with a loss of hearing for a long time.

“It can be a gradual thing that people are not particularly motivated to do anything about it.

“This is a good trigger.”

The centre on Princess Street is offering free 45-minute hearing health appointments all week from Monday, January 22.

A 10 per cent discount will also be available on noise and leisure solutions, such as snore and swim plugs, shooting plugs and bespoke earphones.

Roger said: “Hearing loss has a massive impact.

“Communication is everything.

“Socialising is very important to people.

“What leads to longest life is a good network of friends.”

Appointments must be booked in advance at

Throughout the week people will be able to book onto sessions on fitness, yoga, podiatry, life coaching, health checks and counselling.

A full programme is available from town centre businesses.

The event is being sponsored by Slater and Gordon Knutsford Family Law.
