Wimborne Stroke Support Group organised two ‘Round the Islands’ boat trips in Poole Harbour for its members and a great time was had by all. “I am sure the coffee, cakes and biscuits had something to do with it,’ one member commented.
Coach trips followed to Swanage and Compton Acres.
Dave Saxton, topics and events co-ordinator for the group said: “This was our first year of ‘Trips Out’ and I am sure all felt they were a great success.”
The group meets on the second Wednesday every month, usually at the Wimborne Scout Hall in Station Road and for a change of scenery, the group enjoys coffee and cakes in the Cedar Room, Haskins Garden Centre, Ferndown, two or three times a year.
“Like the Stroke Association, with whom we all have links, we believe in ‘Life after Stroke’,” added Dave. “That’s why we try to support stroke survivors and the people who care for them living in the Wimborne and surrounding areas.”
