Southwest Meetings  

Following the success of the monthly Sunday meetups in London, three members of the Achalasia Action group are hosting informal achalasia meetings in Bournemouth and Salisbury.  Like the London meetings, this meeting is a casual get-together with no fixed agenda. Just a friendly meet-up to discuss our experiences and try to help each other. Anyone with achalasia is welcome, regardless of where you live.  If you would like to come, please just return a very quick email.
