We are a group of Ostomates who with our partners and friends meet at least once a month for social afternoon or evening get togethers.
This group is for all Colostomates, Ileostomates and Urostomates
Our aim is to give everyone a chance to see how we all cope with our stoma’s, have a laugh and support each other and the people who support us.
Each month we have someone along to provide a talk or demonstration with the chance to take part in a small raffle and enjoy a cup of tea and cake. You will be amongst friends and although we do not dispense medical advice we are able to advise you where to go based on our own experiences. We all share the same problems and see no reason to change our way of life. There is no need to book as everyone is welcome even if you have not yet had your operation but maybe you would like to discuss any concerns? Had a reversal? So have many of our members.
We meet on the first Tuesday afternoon of each month from 2 pm until 4 pm and also on the Quiz nights. Your family and friends are very welcome.
