Exmouth Stroke Survivors & Family Club are pleased to announce that Simon Jupp, MP for East Devon will visit the club at the Bidmead Community Centre on Friday 27th January, at 4pm.
We would very much like to invite you to visit us then too. We are keen to promote our work in the community and raise awareness, both of what to do in the event of a stroke, and for survivors who may not be aware of us.
If you are able to visit us at the Bidmead Community Centre, Littleham, on Friday 27th January at 4pm please let Steve know by calling 07952 273866.
