Chairperson is Malcolm Ryman

Vice- Chair is David Rudd



It is now nearing the end of my third year as your Chairman and I felt that now

is a good time for me to allow someone new to take over the duties.

New ideas are always needed and many changes are on the way.New

Research is starting to make a breakthrough, it may well be in time to make a

difference to some of you, but as we know only too well Research costs a

great deal of money and is also initially expensive to administer to the lucky

few who get to trial these new drugs and procedures.


I have enjoyed being part of this group for Parkinson’s Huntingdonshire and

we have raised good money for research as well as being able to introduce

new ideas and other physical things such as Dance exercise classes and the Singing group.

David Rudd as your Vice Chairman has been the lead in introducing these

things and your Committee has neen very helpful in allowing the monies to be

spent to facilitate their introduction.A good many people are making use of

these facilities, but there is room for more to attend please talk to David and

those that use the facilities, find out more.  They have been introduced to help

you, that is why we do the Fundraising.


The Committee are planning more events over the next year to raise funds,

so I ask you to please support your Committee and your new Chairman,as

you have me.Help them to make a success of their work, they do this

voluntarily to help make life with Parkinson’s a little easier for you.


I intend to be at the majority of the St Ives meetings, so I will be involved still,

but not on the Committee for a while at least.I will where possible help out on various Fundraising activities.

I know that you are very lucky to have David Rudd as your Vice Chairman,he

has a wealth of knowledge about Parkinsons and will be invaluable to your

new Chairman.

I thank you all for putting your trust in me for the past three years,I may not

have seen you all as often as I may have wished, but have always had your

interest and welfare at the forefront of me thoughts.

In closing may I wish you all the very best for now and in the future.

I hope to see many of you on 1st March 2017 at our AGM.



John G. Hughes

Chairman Parkinson’s Huntingdonshire
