Top class vocals are complemented by a stunning brass section and rock-solid rhythm making up a 9 strong line up. Their repertoire is broad and includes the Big Band and Rat Pack classics, Rock and Roll, Soul, Disco, the biggest hits of the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and chart hits of today.

EXERCISE CLASSES

From Thursday 8 September, and every Thursday after this, we are able to offer Exercise Classes again. They will be run by Lewis who is fully trained and a specialist in seated exercises, with music, for Parkinson’s. Time: 11am - 12 noon. Please arrive 10 minutes early to ensure a prompt start. Location: Winsford Library, High Street, Winsford, CW7 2AS. There is a lift. Price: £5. Initially on a pay as you come basis.

Classes are open to partners/carers as well as people with Parkinson’s although people with Parkinson’s will be prioritised if class numbers increase. The classes are seated so are suitable for all abilities.

There is a lovely cafe at the library where they serve simple lunches at very affordable prices if you want to consider this. On the 8th the café is not open so if you fancy a chat and get-together after the class please bring a picnic lunch with you.

Please let us know if you would like to come, either by replying to this email, on one of the What’s App groups that are already in existence (we can add you if you aren’t already a member of one of the groups) or by messaging or ringing 07491 681377.

Research :

Details about research interest groups are already established in other regions of the UK and bring together local groups, volunteers and researchers with the aim of creating stronger links between people living with Parkinson’s and Parkinson’s researchers. You can read more about Parkinson’s UK’s RIGs programme online here: https://www.parkinsons.org.uk/research/local-parkinsons-research-groups

We know that many of our local groups and volunteers are keen to keep abreast of research and in particular local research projects, so please do let your members know that there is a new opportunity on the horizon and circulate the attached letter (at the very bottom of this email) which contains all the vital information, contact details etc. If you have any queries please get in touch with either Liz Nash or Nicola Ray both of whom would be happy to answer your questions. nw_research_interest_group_-_intro_letter.pdf
