Meetings and Sessions

Monday Meetings and Drop-in Sessions

Monday Meetings

Our Monday Meetings have always been the keystone of our activities. We meet on the second and fourth Monday of every month (excepting Bank Holidays) at the Bridge on the Stratford Road, Shirley. The meetings start at 2.00 pm and usually break up at about 4.00 pm. This is where you can make contact with other members on a regular basis. The dates of this year's Monday Meetings are shown in the Calendar section of this website.

We may have a speaker from a relevant, outside organisation. The talk usually lasts for about half an hour.

We usually have a quiz at each meeting, with the members divided into two teams. We generally have one round of bingo and there is almost always a raffle. Tea and coffee are served, together with cakes and biscuits and members take time to have a chat with one another to catch up.

If you or a member of your family are effected by MS you are welcome to come along to our Monday Meetings, even if you are not a member of MS-Solihull Branch.

Drop-in Sessions

Our Drop-in Sessions are an important part of our support to our members. They are held at the Bridge on the Stratford Road, Shirley between 11.00 am and 2.00 pm on the third Monday of every month, excluding Bank Holidays. The dates of this year's Drop-in sessions are shown in the Calendar section of this website.

Usually, therapists are available at each Drop-in Session, offering a range of therapies suitable for those effected by MS. Members of our support team attend the sessions and are always on hand to offer advice and answer questions and provide information with leaflets etc.

Even if you just want a chat and a cup of tea or coffee, you are welcome to drop in. It is also a way to meet some other members of MS-Solihull in a less structured setting than our Monday Meetings.

If you are effected by MS, you are welcome to come along to our Drop-in Sessions, even if you are not a member of MS-Solihull.
