KEIGHLEY and South Craven people with the communication disability aphasia are being invited to join a new monthly drop-in group.

The first session – being staged by the Say Aphasia charity – takes place on Friday, September 20, at the Dyneley Barn, Dyneley House Surgery, Newmarket Street, Skipton, between 11am and 1pm.

“The drop-ins will be led by people with aphasia – supported by volunteers,” said a spokesman.

“It is a chance to come along and meet others with aphasia over tea and a biscuit and exchange ideas and stories.

“We aim to help those living with aphasia to re-engage with life. You do not have to be a patient at Dyneley House Surgery to attend. The group welcomes anyone with aphasia from the area.”

Anybody interested in attending should contact Dyneley House Surgery on 01756 799811. For more details about the charity, visit
