The Chard and Crewkerne After Stroke Group celebrated 25 years of support by two of its key members with a cream tea party at the Shrubbery Hotel in Ilminster. Forty five clients and their helpers enjoyed an excellent tea party with a slice of the delicious celebration cake. Chard and Crewkerne After Stroke Group was formed in the late 1980’s. Christine Williams and Jenny Fielder have been involved with the group for 25 years, which members agreed was cause for celebration.
Chard and Crewkerne After Stroke Group offers support to those who have suffered a stroke and who are looking to benefit from association with others, who are in a similar situation. The group meets every Tuesday from 10.30 am until 2.30 pm at Chard Rugby Club, where members keep fit with exercises, designed to assist physical and mental health, play games and enjoy lunch together. Members also look forward to the occasional trip out and are frequently visited by the local manager of the Stroke Association, to which the group is accredited. New members are always welcome. Please contact Christine Williams on 01460 66631 for more information.
