Parkinson’s Thurrock Support Group: Feb Report

ANOTHER meeting wends it way, however a change to a new exercise led by Gillian, dancing to music and proves again it’s usefulness to improve balance and to make one do things, we usually let slide. Now we wish Wendy our Kenisis trainer all the best from her stay in hospital.

We were then entertained by David Hylands who started by singing: “A policeman’s lot is not a happy one” in a striking baritone voice. He then gave a talk on truncheons and gavels explaining his life in the Metropolitan Police Force and now in his retirement.

His ability as a Toastmaster in making sure important events in one life go true to form. He finished by singing one song from Gilbert & Sullivan’s Iolanthe. and a song about the sewerage system called Down Below.

Refreshments were taken during which the raffle was drawn.

Sheila then told of arrangements for the outings. First to Pole Hill, then to Eastbourne, names to Sheila by next meeting .Once again Margaret had produced a newsletter out of thin air/ You can all write about something eventful that has happened to yourself in your life .so hopefully she will have plenty of copy for the next one.
