SPORTS PARKINSON'S CUP
On Sunday 5th March Northern Lights will be proudly defending the Walking Football trophy they won last year at St Georges Park.
This year promises to be bigger & better than before, as more peoplke are getting involved in walking football & realising the benefits (both mentally & physically) it has for people with Parkinson's.
NORTHERN LIGHTS MERCHANDISE
New NLPD clothing that has been ordered is being collected this week & will be issued to everyone at St George's Park on Saturday or ASAP if you're not going to SGP. See Christine Jones for more information.
Walking Football Not on this week
Our regular Friday session of walking football will not be on this week (Friday 3rd March) at the Brunswick Centre ,as our players prepare to compete in the Sports Parkinson's Cup at the weekend. Stuart will be taking the session again from Friday 10th March.
Thanks to all who make our weekly activities so much fun , Doug with his eclectic musical taste and wealth of knowledge , June with the quiz and Linda with the Book Club which is thriving. The virtual bar - The Procrastinators Arms- finally opened and the Ladies Prosecco Appreciation Meetings are also a success.
We have in the past week started playing walking football and the Crown Green Bowls season is upon us this weekend, we will find out how our friends at Marine FC can support us & help us to provide a strong foundation to grow the community & help you, our PD family.
Our most popular activity by far is talking , not exclusively about PD and all of the areas it impacts all of our lives but we do have a very well informed group with access to a broad spectrum of up to date information. We often just chat about whatever comes up first from within these very fertile minds .
