We would like to see everyone across organisations, voluntary & community groups pledging to do at least one thing to help people to stop smoking and help achieve our vision for a smoke free Cumbria.

What can we do?

•Staff can complete free e-learning around helping people who want to quit.

‘If you don’t smoke, don’t start vaping; if you do smoke, stop altogether if you can - and our pharmacies can help; and if you can’t stop, or don’t want to - switch to vaping’

The Dance and Parkinson’s group is managed through the offices of the West Cumbria Parkinson’s society and it is open to all who are managing the Parkinson’s condition and those whose lives have been affected by this.

The general idea is to enjoy moving to music, learning to dance and dancing some easy social dances such as social foxtrot, waltz and cha cha cha. They keep everything light and group members join in as much as they feel able on any given day. They have a great team of dancers who partner and join in the fun which is all designed to help keep everyone moving with style.

Every Wednesday in the King’s Church hub in market place (formally Riversmeet). Doors open from 2.30pm and the class starts at 3.00pm ending 4.15pm.

West Cumbria Parkinson’s Group collect £2 per session, tea and coffee provided.
