The Greater London support group holds four meetings a year at venues in Central London. Each venue will be within easy walking distance of a mainline train station. Each meeting has an expert speaker on a relevant area of interest, followed by networking and the opportunity to meet and share experiences with others.The group is open to anyone with PMR and/or GCA, friends, family and anyone who is interested in finding out more.

There is no formal membership for the group, but a small donation is suggested if you would like to attend.

RSVP to  

Anne Storey (Group Organiser) is on holiday for the two weeks prior to the meeting date - so if possible, please can you let her know BEFORE 30th JUNE if you are planning to come - even if ultimately you don't make it.  

Also do let Anne know if you are new to the group and would like directions.

RSVP.  It’s really helpful to know if you plan to come – even if you ultimately can’t make it.  Just helps to know how much milk to buy and how many chairs to put out!

Refreshments:  Tea and Coffee will be supplied

Cost: In order to finance the group, it would be great if those attending could donate £5 towards costs

Directions from Liverpool Street station. It’s easiest to come out via the escalator to the upper concourse and onto Bishopsgate(West), turn right, cross Bishopsgate at the pedestrian lights and go down Devonshire Row, then across Devonshire Square, which briefly becomes Cutler St. At the junction turn briefly left onto Harrow Place - you’ll see the Travelodge hotel in front of you - and immediately right into Artizan Street. The library is just past the Petticoat Tower, on your left (it’s not much of a ‘street’ now, more a narrow walkway beside an entrance to an underground car park – doesn't look very prepossessing!).

Directions from Aldgate tube. This route is slightly longer than you might expect because of building works getting in the way, however it should take no more than 10 minutes walking at a leisurely pace. Exit Aldgate station on to Aldgate High Street and turn right. Walk down the High Street, passing Itsu on your left and St Botolph's without Aldgate church on your right. Turn right as soon as you can after St Botolphs's (opposite Boots) so that you follow the perimeter of the building site around until you almost reach the back of the church. Turn left at Tesco Express into Houndsditch and then take the first right - this is Stoney Lane. The Artizan Street Library is at the end of this road, just past the Post Office and Travelodge.

If you need parking, there are a few meter spaces (card or pay by phone) in Stoney Lane or Gravel Lane – best approach via Houndsditch.
