Ticks

Monday 9 October 2017. I had a Facebook message yesterday from Bev Spriggs. She was a regular walker with our group until about 3 years ago when she was bitten by a Tick, since when her health has steadily declined. I’ve added a couple of links below so that you can read up on the subject.

Bev asked me to raise awareness as someone was recently bitten by a Tick whilst walking at Sandringham and has contracted Lyme disease with serious health consequences. Thankfully, I’ve never been bitten by a Tick but at least I know how to recognise this and when to seek medical help.
