A PODIATRY practice in Blackburn is putting its best foot forward by refreshing its brand.

Staff at Pear Tree Podiatry, in Mincing Lane, have been noticing how more young people are taking care of their feet.

This could anything from a toenail reconstruction to hot wax treatments and moisturising, say the experts.

Practice owner Catherine Adams said: "Our core business has always been the over 65s and people who have to work on their feet all day.

"But foot health is important for all ages, which is why we’re getting involved with the #FeetMatter social media campaign."

Plans are in place to add an extra clinic room to their town centre premises and recruit more trained chiropodists to their five-strong team.
