Parkinson’s Support Group

Members enjoyed discovering the hidden talents of two of our much loved members.  Some of us knew Angela Croad was no stranger to a theatre stage so we invited her to entertain us.

Monologues and poems came alive as Angela used different accents and superb timing to deliver them.  They covered a variety of subjects – some totally unknown to us but some old favourites like Albert and the Lion. Gerry, Angela’s husband and our group Chairman, also made a good job of reading some poems and stories.

Instead of our regular ‘bring a plate buffet’ Lynda Sansom laid on one of her famed Pie and Peas meals.  Members Stella, Maureen and Barbara ably assisted her.

Robin Old was pleased with the turnout for a meal he organised at the Old Reindeer Edingley. The food was very good but he felt the main benefit was everyone enjoying each others company.

If you would like to know more about this friendly independent group please contact Michael &  Michael on 01636 812399 or email

We meet from 11.00 – 1.00 on the 2nd Saturday of the month at Reach UK, Prebend Passage, Southwell NG25 0JH – Just £1 per person and a plate of food towards the buffet lunch.
