Timetable of meetings - please open the following :

Exercise Classes

Exercise Classes are run by Lewis, 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 cafe at the library where they serve simple lunches at very affordable prices if you want to consider this.

Please let us know if you would like to come, 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
