Clean up to cut down!

RESIDENTS across Filey and Hunmanby are being urged to clean up this winter - and cut down on illnesses.

Health bosses from North Yorkshire and York, have encouraged people to be vigilant about hand washing to reduce the threat of colds and flu.

Dr Phil Kirby, Interim Director of Public Health at NHS North Yorkshire and York, said: “The most common way germs are spread is on your hands and proper hand washing with soap and warm water is the single most important thing you can do to help reduce the spread of infection and help protect you and those around you.”
