Reminder
Of course we exist to support anyone affected by Parkinson’s, but if you have not joined Parkinson’s UK please do so.
It is just 4 per year, and allows you discounts on some Branch events, the excellent publications focused on Parkinson’s as well as the security of the Society’s insurance.

Stop Press
Because exercise is now known to be very important for Parkinson’s people, it is desirable that it should be
available in several forms. We currently provide chair-based exercise, dance (2 varieties), and singing.
I am currently talking to One Leisure about swimming at the St Neots pool at a time when few other
swimmers are present. The St Neots pool has advantages over the other One Leisure pools, namely: there
is a shallow stair so it is convenient to walk into and out of the pool; there is the ‘lagoon’ attached to the
main pool which has a level bottom the same depth as the shallow end for swimmers who do not like
deeper water; there is a wheelchair access for anyone who needs it, and even a hoist for the severely
disabled.
There will be further news in the New Year when the new pool timetable is published. Anyone interested is
recommended to go to the pool and take out (free?) membership. The charge for members is 3.90 per
session against 5.20 for non-members.
