Macclesfield stroke groups
Knit and Natter.
They are a friendly group that meet monthly to knit and natter about anything and everything. There are also a further two affiliated stroke clubs in Macclesfield that the Stroke Association supports. All of the groups are run by volunteers and rely on donations.
We run a local drop-in session for people who have been affected by stroke at Wykeham Chase Communal Lounge, (off Ivy Road, Macclesfield, SK11 8QU). It starts at 10:30am and finishes at 12:00pm.
If you would like to hear more information about these groups or would like to get involved, please contact Diane Warhurst or Jayne Humphreys on 01625 612044
