Cardiac Support

Monthly meetings are held at Holtwhites Sports & Social Club, Kirkland Drive, Holtwhites Hill, Enfield, EN2 0RN.

These meetings, with guest speakers on a range of health related topics, are friendly, informative and free. Members spend an enjoyable and therapeutic couple of hours among people who have had similar problems to their own. There is no joining fee but members are asked to pay £1.50 for tea/coffee and biscuits.

"When I put the helmet on, I nearly couldn't stand up it was so heavy. We do have a laugh at the meetings and exercise sessions. Who said that exercising has to be boring?" Joan

Speakers at the meetings range from medical consultants and GPs to hospital pharmacists, nurses and fitness trainers. Question and answer sessions are always lively and there is usually the opportunity to have a word with the speaker privately afterwards. Click here for a full list of our scheduled speakers.

Meetings start at 7pm and are held on the second Thursday of every month (except August when there is no meeting). There are normally 50 – 60 members in attendance and the more popular meetings can achieve up to 100 attendees.
