Bristol City Council stop smoking team hits the streets

10 March 2015

This year's national No Smoking Day is Wednesday 11 March and Bristol City Council's stop smoking team will be out and about in various locations across the city throughout the day encouraging smokers to stub out those cigarettes once and for all.

The council's stop smoking service offers free local help to anyone who's ready to quit, and on Wednesday will be in the following locations providing information on the local support available and promoting the health benefits of stopping smoking:

  • Tesco at Eastville
  • Broadwalk Shopping Centre
  • Bristol Royal Infirmary
  • Southmead Hospital

Councillor Daniella Radice, Assistant Mayor for Public Health said: "Stopping smoking is a real challenge, so getting support from experts, as well as friends and family, is very important.

"Please don't be shy to seek a little help, and remember you're four times more likely to stop smoking for good by using free stop smoking services."

Smokers already thinking about giving up the cigarettes are encouraged to visit to get ready to quit with thousands of others this No Smoking Day.
