For our monthly meetings, in addition to Zoom, we will be live streaming the meeting on YouTube.
This will mean that you do not need a password or user-id to be able to watch the meeting, just go to the following link or search for Parkinson's New Forest within YouTube
Our August virtual meeting will take place on our usual Zoom and will also be streamed live on our brand new YouTube channel on Thursday 20th August as 14:00hrs (2pm).
The speaker will be Patrick Kempe, and the talk will be "Lorenzo and his amazing Lusitano horses".
Patrick says "His training is out of this world, kind and
calm. The horses just love working with
him in the fields and even the sea.
I have been fortunate in being able to
spend time over the years with this incredible
horseman both at shows in Europe,
England and Middle East as well as
at his farm in the South of France."
We are a relaxed, friendly group of people who either have, or are affected by, Parkinson's who come together to support and care for each other.
The primary aim of this website is to share information which members have found helpful within our Branch. It is mainly for those suffering from PD and their carers but may also be of interest to those with other conditions and those visiting the area to help them make the most of their visit to the New Forest. It provides links to many sources of information rather than duplicating that information on the site. For detailed information about the Parkinson's, read the Parkinson'sUK or NHS webpages
The Branch meets on the third Thursday of each month at Boldre War Memorial Hall SO41 5QG) at 2pm. There is usually a talk, followed by tea and biscuits.
The group meet for a pub lunch every other month with a special meal for Christmas.
The branch is part of Parkinson'sUK, the UK national charity for Parkinson's
"We're the Parkinson's charity that drives better care, treatments and quality of life. Together we can bring forward the day when no one fears Parkinson's".
