Fenland and District Coeliac Group, which covers Lincolnshire, is holding a couple of events next month.

Coeliac disease affects one in every 100 people and is a digestive condition caused by an adverse reaction to gluten – found in wheat, barley and rye and any products produced using these cereals.

Possible symptoms are tiredness, nausea, wind, anaemia, loss of weight and bloating.

Those attending the events can ask questions, sample products and help raise awareness of Coeliac disease

If you have any paper back books or items that could be used for a tombola stall at future events , they can be brought along too.

A coffee morning will be held on Saturday, October 4 at Downham Market Town Hall in Norfolk ( PE38 9JZ) from 9.30am until noon.
