6th Mar | Caring for your feet – talk by Julie Garwood

This was a fascinating and informative talk by Julie Garwood, a chiropodist for 28 years who has her treatment room in Capel. The talk covered the workings and structure of the foot and, with photographs, showed the various conditions which can affect the foot. These included nail problems, corns and callouses, bunions, athlete’s foot and diabetic foot.

Our members were enthralled by the very detailed information and answers to their questions, and by the advice Julie offered afterwards. At least eight ladies also consulted her.

Julie kindly donated her fee to the Somersham Ward at Ipswich hospital and ALSO donated a treatment session to a Capel Ladies’ raffle!

A warning: Every 1lb of overweight is equivalent
to 4lbs of weight on hips and knees!
