Tick information 

There are some simple precautions you can take to reduce your chances of getting bitten by a Tick.  Keep to paths and tracks.  If passing through areas of rough vegetation it’s a good idea to tuck trousers into socks.  Check your clothing and exposed skin for ticks at regular intervals and again at the end of the day.

The above downloadable leaflets provide simple, easily digested introductory information on Ticks and on Lyme disease.
