Aim to set up epilepsy support group

A new support group looks set to be launched in Hastings and St Leonards to help those suffering from epilepsy.

Andy Evans, who set up Eastbourne Area Epilepsy Group in 2005, said the first in a series of coffee mornings will be held on Thursday (July 31) at Harcourts Tea House in Cambridge Road, from 10am to noon where people can get information.

He said: “Eastbourne Area Epilepsy Group now covers all of East Sussex. We support people with epilepsy and their family and friends. Our next aim is to start a group in the Hastings area for adults to start with. We know this could be popular with the response we have got from information stalls held at Priory Meadow.”
