Hi Iain and welcome to Northamptonshire. The local branch of MNDA méet for lunch on the first Wednesday of each month. This is held from 11.45-2.00 in the garden centre next to waitrose in Wootton. It's an informal opportunity to meet with others affected by MND and to share experiences. Lunch is free for the person with MND and a carer. There's no need to book.
