Group information

Contact: Rosa 01908 641663, Betty 01908 265398 or Lynn 07889 319806

Venue:  Age UK Milton Keynes, Peartree Centre, 1 Chadds Lane, Peartree Bridge, Milton Keynes MK6 3EB.

Meeting time: From 2pm

Meeting details: We are a very friendly and caring group that meets on the first Thursday of most months. Family members and friends are welcome too.

Travel details:  By bus - route 4 is the most convenient for The Peartree Centre. If travelling from the direction of the hospital, you will need to cross under the dual carriageway using the underpass at the roundabout. The V8 Marlborough Street is a fast road so we would urge you to use the underpass. If you are coming from the north of Milton Keynes you will get off the bus on the same side of the road as The Peartree Centre. It is also possible to catch the 14 to Milton Keynes Hospital, if you don’t mind a 10 minute walk.

By car - The Peartree Centre is on the corner of Chadds Lane with the V8 Marlborough Street, to the south east of Central Milton Keynes, not far from the hospital. If driving north up the V8 Marlborough Street (a dual carriageway), look out for a feeder lane on the right which is signposted Peartree Bridge. This turning is between the roundabouts on the H7 Chaffron Way and the H8 Standing Way and is quite easy to miss. If you are driving from the north, down the V8 Marlborough Street, after the roundabout for the H7 Chaffron Way take the turning on the left into Chadds Lane. If you get as far as the turning for the Peartree Bridge Inn, near Roni’s Hand Car Wash, you have gone too far.

The Peartree Centre is a modern redbrick building with blue window frames, set back from the road with a car park in front of it.

* Note to research companies:

The Lymphoma Association is highly supportive of research work that has the potential to improve the treatment, outcomes and experiences of people affected by lymphoma. In this spirit we are happy to facilitate access and contact between recognised researchers and the patients and carers within our network, including those who attend our support groups should they wish to do so. However, in the interests of probity and in order to protect the role of our support groups, any requests and approaches to involve them in research projects must be officially approved in advance by the charity. Without this approval, we will not allow or endorse such approaches and any accompanying research. Our support group coordinators are aware of this policy. If you are looking for people to take part in research, please call us on 01296 619400 or email communications@lymphomas.org.uk.
