Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, our in-person activities were suspended. Some of our activities have moved online and we will gradually return to some in-person activities.
We know that support and friendship from group activities is important and we're here to support you. You can get in touch with your local group for up to date information about activities using the contact details on this page.

More about our group
The branch runs a number of popular activities 4 days a week almost every week of the year.
We know that keeping moving is essential in Parkinson’s to slow down the progression, and enable everyone to enjoy the best quality of life so these include: pilates, physiotherapy, table tennis and Argentine tango. We also offer speech therapy, choir and social gatherings.
Details and timings for these activities are listed. If you’re nervous or unsure whether these activities are right for you, please ring for a chat with one of our volunteers Carol Matthews (01403 263882), Liz Roberts (01403 217263) [email protected], or Paul Dodd (01403 266173).
The branch has a team of friendly volunteers but we’re always grateful for others who’d like to help out. Right now we’re keen to find someone who will help organise refreshments at our monthly gatherings.
We also fundraise to help run local activities, contribute towards research, Parkinson’s nurses and other services. Get in touch if you’d like to help.
