Stoptober Is back

Are you ready to achieve your dream?

All over the country people will take part in the 28 day challenge to stop smoking during October.

This Stoptober will be supporting comedians to swap their ‘fags for gags’.


Paddy McGuinness, Al Murray, Simon Brodkin (aka Lee Nelson, Jason Bent and Dr Bob) and Andi Osho will start their journey to a smoke free life. You will be able to follow their progress via Facebook and Twitter.

Here in Hereford we have been working closely with Halo, your local pharmacies and doctors surgeries gearing up to help support you this October if you are looking to take part. You can pop along to any of these services and receive qualified help and support to quit smoking.

You can also pick up leaflets from your local library, information centre, children’s centre and council building.

Herefordshire Council will also be supporting you all the way with regular updates via our social media channels.

The 28-day challenge starts on Tuesday 1st October. For more information and to join the biggest stop smoking challenge of its kind, search ‘Stoptober’ online and sign up.
