All are welcome – friends, relatives, partners and especially the undiagnosed (we all started out undiagnosed so know what’s what).
The format is simple – there are no rules, no charges, no notes taken – you show up (we aren’t bothered if you turn up at your leisure) and ask anything you want, there’s usually someone with relevant experience. You don’t even have to talk about ADHD – it’s completely open.
And we’re friendly. ADHDers tend to be friendly and non-judgemental (who are we to judge?) and everyone had to come to a first meet, so we know what that feels like, so we’re very welcoming.
Look out for me (David) – mug shot below. That shirt is my meet ‘uniform’. Also Tufty the Squirrel, who will be on our table.
It’s usually best to email a few days before to get my number (if I put it here I get spam calls all day long).
If you turn up to a meet and we’re not there (AFTER the start time) then check the WhatsApp group for updates – better still get my phone number beforehand so you can call/text (please not to say you’re going to be late – I’ll be busy). Here’s that WhatsApp link
If anyone wants to arrange their own meet send an email and it can appear here – we’re here to support you!
if you need any further detail mail us – the address is
If you have any issues you don’t want discussing in open meeting you can always talk, in confidence, with our staff by email, phone or in person, to see if we can help. Catch us at the meeting or arrange any other contact by mailing the address above.
Are you terrible at checking for updates?
Ask to be on our mailing list (spam free) so the updates come to you.
Send an email to the address above asking to be added to it.
There’s also a WhatsApp group (read only) – here’s the link to that
Wednesday 1st September
The Ostrich 7-9PM
163 Bury Old Rd, Prestwich, Manchester M25 1JF (opposite Heaton Park)
Try looking in the garden (1st) for Dave and Tufty (as in the two photos on this page) – we’ll try to get a table in the covered area.
Tram stop nearby, free parking in front of the pub or down the side street.
I will have location turned on in my Messenger app – contact me via the mADDchester Facebook page to message me and get into the Messenger group – I can’t put my phone number here because it will get spammed. You’ll have to ask for it.
If we aren’t there, and it’s past 7PM, check the WhatsApp meets page or Facebook for updates.
The pub doesn’t know we’re going – just look for the stuffed squirrel or message me if you can’t see us.
more September 2021

Britannia Road, Sale, M33 2AA

Thursday 5th August 7-9PM
Jackson’s Boat (pub)
Rifle Rd, Sale M33 2LX
The pub has a large beer garden – if it’s not raining we’ll probably be there.
It’s an open area so there might not be shade. Get sunscreen, or a hat, if you are sun bothered.
Well behaved dogs/children are welcome.
Jackson’s Boat can close early – it’s possible we’ll move on to the King’s Ransom (M33 2AA) especially if they still do the pub quiz.
If you have questions the easiest way to get attention is to PM us via our Facebook page
They have a pay and display car park – fee refundable if you make a purchase.
If you’re anything like me then you’ll take the free option and walk rather than trying to remember change/refunds. Both Sale Water Park and the tram stop have free parking – it’s a short walk away.
Getting there – car. Best to take Junction 6 of the M60. It’s signposted from there. Set sat-nav to M33 2LX.
Tram. The Metrolink Victoria-Manchester Airport line is a very short stroll away.
