If you are hoping to come along, it would be helpful if you could let Fred know so that we have a general idea of numbers for catering.

Parkinson's UK Members' Day and 2018 AGM Join other members of the Parkinson's community at their Members' Day and 2018 Annual General Meeting (AGM).  It is an opportunity to share ideas and inspiration, learn about the impact that is being made, and help shape future plans - as well as taking part in this year's AGM. Paul Mayhew-Archer will be the host for the day. Paul has written some of the UK's most loved comedy shows - including The Vicar of Dibley and Mrs Brown's Boys - and has been a dedicated supporter and member of the charity since he was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2011.  The event is 11am-3.45pm on Sat 20 October 2018 (Conference Aston, Aston University, Aston Street, Birmingham B4 7ET). For more information visit www.parkinsons.org.uk/about-us/agm-2018 Lottery update Unfortunately there has been a delay in starting the Branch lottery due to administrative issues. However, we are still keen to get this underway and an update will follow in the next newsletter. And finally, Fred’s thoughts...  Look on the world as a big fruit cake... it wouldn't be complete without a few nuts in it.
