Blyth Valley Parkinson’s Support Group

AT our September meeting we had an opportunity to sit and talk over coffee and biscuits and discover what others had been doing over the summer. We heard how one of our members had had the opportunity to sing on the stage at Snape Maltings along with the local Parkinson’s choir. Well done Shirley! Our October meeting saw us

at a change of venue, coffee and cake whilst looking at the fantastic views across the Blyth estuary at Reydon. On Wednesday 13th November we will meet again in the Garden room at Patrick Stead Hospitalt at 10am. Look forward to seeing you.
