Fresh name and fresh start for stroke club

A new name and a change is venue is the order of the day for a stroke recovery group in Ottery.

Survivors, the Sidmouth group, is being renamed East Devon Stroke following a winter break, and is moving to Ottery St Mary.

Starting this week they will be meeting in a new venue adjacent to the Dance Studio, which has better disabled access, toilet facilities and easier parking, at 2pm.

The sessions, which provide exercises for men and women recovering from strokes, last an hour every Tuesday and cost �5, but there is a free trial period for potential new members.

There is also a free counselling and advisory service to members. Fir more info call Terry Hounsom on 01395 576736
