The Department of Health is taking it to the streets, offering Free Health Checks to the public on Friday, August 18th.
From 4pm until 8pm at Albuoy’s Point, adults 18 and over can get their blood glucose and blood pressure checked, as well as cardiac profiling and other health monitoring.

If you wish your significant other had the skills to soothe your aching feet and shoulders during pregnancy then bring them to the Couple’s Prenatal Massage Workshop held every week starting on Sunday, August 20th.
Pregnancy is an amazing experience that is often emotionally demanding and physically challenging. Even during a textbook pregnancy, women find themselves tired, achy, irritable, unable to rest soundly or uncomfortable throughout their term. How can you find relief? With so many benefits to offer Sacred Waters Spa believe that massage is a great place to begin and promise that their workshop may be the answer that you are looking for.
The workshop will be held from 2pm to 4pm, every Sunday at a Southampton location that will be announced to registered attendees only. There will be refreshments, healthy beverages and mimosas available.
The cost is $75 per couple (group rate) or $125 for couples who would like to book an exclusive one-on-one workshop.
For more information, or to register, contact email@example.com.
Another great opportunity to listen to entertaining presentations on a variety of topics, presented in a quick, easy-to-digest format – mark your calendars for the 20th Volume of Pechakucha Bermuda: Dockside Edition on Thursday, August 24th.
PechaKucha Nights were started in Japan and have a 20×20 presentation format where each speaker shows 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images. Since there is no pausing or going back, speakers have no choice but to keep to their allotted time. Following each presentation is a 3 minute 40 second Q&A session with the audience.
Doors open at 7pm at the Blue Water Anglers Club on East Broadway, and the show will start just after sunset at 8pm.
