Branch Meetings:

This is a gathering of approximately 40-50 members and Branch volunteers; new members are always welcome. We offer light refreshments on arrival, the opportunity to chat with other people with Parkinson’s (PwPs) and their carers.  There is usually a speaker (over the year topics range from PD research and therapy, to general or local history).  The meeting concludes with a sandwich lunch (plus soup in winter). 

4th Friday of every month 10:30-12:30pm, in-person Branch Meeting in the David Rayner Building at Scotsdales Garden Centre 120 Cambridge Road, CB22 5JT.

Café Meetings:

If you haven’t been to one of our meetings before please, just turn up. You will be made very welcome and you will quickly make new friends with a common interest.

There are no charges for our meetings nor is there a necessity to be a member or Parkinson’s UK although we will encourage you to join!

We request voluntary donations for refreshments.
