Basildon and Brentwood CCG joined groups and community organisations at the second annual Basildon MayFest celebration on Saturday 13 May.
The Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) set up a stall in the town square to highlight health campaigns.
Activities included a Human Fruit and Veg Machine game designed to raise awareness of healthy eating and a ‘Tipple Test’ which used juice and water to demonstrate how much a unit of alcohol actually is.
Men and women should drink no more than 14 units of alcohol a week - the equivalent of six pints of average strength beer or seven glasses of wine - in order to keep their health risks low.
The event coincided with the end of Dying Matters Awareness Week (May 7-14) and the Die Well Essex campaign which was about encouraging people to start conversations about death, dying and bereavement.
Throughout the awareness week, people have been sharing images of loved ones who have passed away.
The CCG would like to thank everyone who took part in the Die Well Essex photo conversation on Instagram using the hashtag #DieWellEssex. A selection of the images were displayed at Saturday’s event.
