Within our monthly meetings we try to organise a range of speakers:

Some are from the Parkinson's UK community; some are health care professionals with an interest in Parkinson's; some are academics researching into Parkinson's, its causes, symptoms and treatment.

We are always keen to get out and about.

In June we organise the John Massam Family Day at the Beach Huts in Blyth. Everyone is invited along with friends, family and dogs. Bring buckets and spades and sunscreen. Easy to park and walk.

In July, we take a trip down the Tyne in the Quay to Sea trip. There is access for people with walkers and limited mobility. A local guide points out areas of interests and gives an insight into the life on the Tyne in
days past and present day. Excellent bar and food. We hold the Geoff Cobbing Memorial Cycle Ride in September. All

December sees us holding our annual Christmas meal at the Pitcher and Piano.

Please get in touch for more information.
