Morecambe Bay Support Group

Patron: Professor Gill Baynes

This support group meets at:  The Church of Ascension, Lancaster Road, Torrisholme  LA4 6SF The Morecambe Bay Support group was re-established in 2007 to support people with Osteoporosis.  We hold six meetings a year on the third Tuesday of every other month (commencing February each year): 5 evening meetings and one during the afternoon.  

These take place at The Church of Ascension, Torrisholme, Morecambe, LA4 6SF which is readily accessible by bus and car.  There is a small car park (no charge) to the rear of the building and adjacent street parking.  All facilities at the Church Hall and Vestry are on the ground floor with ramped access for wheelchair users and those with impaired mobility. Our meetings start at 7.00pm and usually finish by 9.00pm.  We do not charge a group membership fee but ask for £2.00 to attend each meeting.  This helps to cover essential expenses (hire of the hall, speaker gift) and also includes refreshments. We are a warm and friendly group providing an opportunity for members to meet, gain information and share experiences with others who have Osteoporosis.
