Not a Favourite Hallowe'en Activity.

It's that time of year when bowel screening kits drop through the door.

I know it's for my own good, but I must confess out of all the old established Hallowe'en traditions, catching poo on a lolly stick is not top of my list of favourites.

Still, look on the bright side, in addition to getting a free TV licence at 75 I also can't get bowel cancer (screening stops at 74!).

I've never heard of this scheme if it is a scheme. Maybe they don't do it in the area I live in. Is it available countrywide? If so nobody has ever mentioned it to me.

In some areas in England screening includes people up to 75 years old. People over the age of 70, regardless of where they live, can request a kit by calling 0800 707 6060

So I would think you could keep on testing. They may think that if there is no sign by the age of 75, you should have a very good chance of not getting bowel cancer.

Sticky subject.

I seem to recall you're a bit older than me, old son, so you're outside the bracket!
