Were you at Queen’s Park Day?

BPV  made one of its rare non-virtual appearances  at Queen’s Park Day on Sunday 13th September. On a mostly sunny day thousands of people enjoyed exciting performances, shows and stalls. We used our stall to show the flag and had some interesting conversations with local partners, even if the Great British Public’s mind was on other things.

Not many people had time to fill in answers to our quiz on the NHS so here it is to make you think, if you have a moment to spare. The prize was awarded on the day.

Your health – our health – our money – who does what?
