Stroke Club celebrates

Members of the Bridgnorth Stroke Club recently celebrated its 20th anniversary at a dinner at the Punchbowl Inn, joined by guests and those who have supported the club over the years. The club was formed when the occupational therapy department at Bridgnorth Hospital identified a need for a support group for people affected by a stroke.

The three founder members were the late Brian Tudor and George Childs, along with Kenny Edwards, who is still an active member of the group. Today the club is going strong with a dedicated committee and membership of around 40 people, all of whom have a wealth of practical information and tips which can be passed to new members. Monthly meetings are held at Greenfields Court with a varied programme of entertainment including speakers, demonstrations, a tea party in the summer and a Christmas lunch in December.

The club also takes its members on trips; recently to Sudeley Castle, Gloucester, the British Ironworks Centre in Oswestry, and a boat trip over the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. Meetings are on the second Tuesday of every month.
