Stroke Group Meeting

At the meeting of the Church Stretton and District Stroke Group on Thursday 20th September, Chairwoman Mrs Breda Parish thanked retiring secretary Mrs Doreen Mansell and retiring Treasurer Mrs Edythe Embleton for their many years of dedicated hard work on behalf of members. Doreen has done so much for the Group including organising a variety of activities, trips and even holidays, while Edythe has kept the finances in order impeccably. They were both presented with gifts as gestures of our appreciation. Mrs Ann Bednall and Mrs Dot Goodwin have taken on the roles of Secretary and Treasurer and are both looking forward to taking the work of the Group forward.

At the AGM in September the Group was very pleasedto hear that, with 19 years of service, Beda has agreed to continue as Chairwoman for a further year.

The Group was set up to support stroke survivors, their carers and families. We offer social activities, entertainment, outings and information sessions. We are a very friendly group which meets from 2.00 to 4.00pm on the second Thursday of each month in the Jubilee Room at Mayfair. We are always very happy to welcome new members who might benefit from our support.
