Parkinson’s Support Group

There is not much to report on this month as the Coronavirus caused the cancellation of the monthly meeting and the monthly lunch out. Mary Poole, owner of the Hop barn near Upton, agreed with the decision to cancel and offered to give her talk next year instead.

Sadly our group has had to cope with the death of a much loved member. Bernard Lancaster, who served as Vice Chairman, died suddenly, leaving his lovely wife June in shock.  The threat of catching the virus prevented our more poorly members from attending the funeral but even so quite a few members did attend. Lynda gave June a beautiful rose called Remembrance set in an attractive outdoor pot, as a mark of respect from the members.

Bernard was a very active man who delighted in setting quizzes and arranging events for the members. We will miss him very much but we are pleased that June intends to remain in the group.
