Peter Lilley, MP for Hitchin and Harpenden, had his blood pressure tested in Harpenden last Saturday. Mr. Lilley visited the Stroke Awareness Week stall on the concourse in front of Boots in Harpenden and had his blood pressure taken.
Peter Lilley said:
“I congratulate the Stroke Association and Harpenden Village Rotary on highlighting the importance of taking precautions to avoid strokes. A steady stream of Harpenden people were taking the opportunity to test their blood pressure.
“When I arrived my first reading was quite high ? this may have been because I had just been discussing the recent council tax increases with local residents! I am pleased to say that when I calmed down, my reading returned to my normal 120.?
