About the group

A new group for people in the Marlow / Farnham Common area is being set up by local volunteer Gilly Wright who is passionate about helping people with tinnitus and hearing problems. With the support of her boss at Help in Hearing, Gilly plans to hold evening meetings initially but would be happy to consider Saturday mornings if there is demand. The group will also alternate between Marlow and Farnham Common venues.
