A Busy Couple of Months

Woolhampton Village Hall


July 2023

It has been a busy couple of months at Stroke Group! With great pleasure we took delivery of our fabulous red chairs with arms, which the members are finding so useful and comfortable. We started with the 30th Anniversary Tea Party followed by a thoroughly enjoyable outing to the Thatcham Garden Centre. 

At the hall, specific physiotherapy, chair and bar exercises continue to improve our fitness and the tremendously popular new artist pursuits and success on the jigsaw front test our concentration!  

Remember to keep an eye on the Calendar.
