Change of Venue for The Stafford Monthly Alzheimer's Support Meeting (MASE) Group

The Stafford Monthly Alzheimer's Support Meeting (MASE) Group are changing venue starting from Monday 25 April 2016. Their new address will be Castlefields Church Hall, Newport Road, Stafford, ST16 1DP.

This is an evening for Carers, and those cared for with Alzheimer's/Dementia, to come along and meet others who are in a similar situation.
