About

A Stroke Association voluntary support group aimed at caring for and helping stroke survivors of working age, their families, carers, friends and anyone who knows them. The group meets on a monthly basis with the help of four volunteers, two of which have had strokes themselves. It provides a very friendly place for people to meet and socialise plus a fun Extend exercise session run by a qualified tutor. The group describes itself as ‘an extended family rather than just a group’. It has been together for over three years and provides people with somewhere to chat over a cup of tea or coffee whilst sharing experiences and problems. Also runs social events including bowling, river cruises and trips to the seaside. Costs £3 per session including refreshments.
