Some 40 members attended the June meeting of Bassetlaw Branch Parkinson’s UK and enjoyed a splendid talk by Mike Ogden on the Royal Blood Line. It is always a pleasure to welcome Mike and his wife and they never fail to give a great presentation.
New members again joined the branch to a warm welcome. The next meeting, on Tuesday 3rd July, will welcome Craig Richards who will explain Inheritance Tax.
The branch continues to grow and offers the hand of friendship and support to anyone with Parkinson’s disease, their family and friends. Newly diagnosed patients often feel that they are not ready to join other patients, but such contact is of great benefit when it becomes obvious that there is a great deal to be gained from knowing there is support available and a full social life to enjoy. Meetings are on the first Tuesday of every month at Worksop Cricket Club at 2.00pm. For more information call Chris on 01909 730629.
