August is a great time to catch up with the many civic and charitable groups we have across the borough. Today, I went and chatted to Walton Stroke Group
, at the invitation of their Vice Chair, Max Jefford.
Walton Stroke Group is a fabulous local group, primarily focused on Walton and Hersham, and provides support and advice to those recovering from strokes and their carers. They organise social activities, outings, exercise classes, bingo, bowling, computer classes and much more.
They meet at Walton Day Centre, where I popped along today to talk to them about the role of an MP – and answer their questions (as pictured below). They grilled me on everything from MP’s pay to EU reform, with both wit and wisdom! They are a great group, and I really appreciated the invitation.
