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).

Thursday 27th May
Heaton Park 2-3:30PM
An outdoor meet due to the Covid restrictions
Find us at the benches just inside the park entrance (the one by the tram stop)
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.
There is plenty of parking in the park – it’s all pay and display.
There’s cafe and toilets (open until 4PM) in the park.
It’s unlikely we will stick to the benches for long – if you are thinking of coming along I’d recommend getting in touch 1st so you have a contact number/link to the Messenger location ie can trace where my phone is.
I will try to be early – 2-3:30 are the ‘core’ times – arriving early/staying late are all options (but I’ll probably leave on time due to traffic concerns – others might hang about).
Monday 16th March 7-9PM
The Trafford Centre
at the front of the food court, between Five Guys and Nando’s, near the exit to the car park.
Please check that we haven’t been forced to cancel due to that damned virus – as close to the meet time as you can.
Wednesday 26th 7-9PM
A Social at
The Bull’s Head
84 London Road
The pub is opposite Piccadilly train station taxi rankThere is parking in the side street (Granby Row) – pay and display till 8PM, free after that.
Monday 29th July 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.
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.
