Parkinson’s UK - Bexhill, Hastings and Rother Branch

THE speaker at our May meeting was Paul Lendon who spoke to us about ‘Sussex Day’ which takes place on June 16 this year. It was interesting to hear about both the history of the event as well as the activities planned for this year.

We also had a demonstration from Fell Duncan (our regional information and support manager) of the Wii games console which some people with Parkinson’s have found helpful with problems such as difficulties with balance.

Our next meeting is on June 21 when we will be having a general knowledge quiz, an activity that always proves popular with our members.

Our meetings take place at Grosvenor Park Nursing Home in Bexhill on the third Friday of each month at 2pm. If you require further information please contact the chairman, Phil Lee, on 223340.
