Changing Times – Coronavirus

I have tried to write a blog for this month several times but the situation with regard to the coronavirus keeps changing daily so this will be brief.
Parkinson’s UK have sent out information plus have various help lines open. The local branch has cancelled their AGM and all the exercise classes plus plans for a variety of summer events. I note that those with Parkinson’s are no more likely to catch the virus which is some consolation.
Earlier this month Channel Four broadcast a programme called “How to Beat Ageing”. The last 15 minutes of the programme is about the part that dance can play in helping those with Parkinson’s. It is certainly worth a look; the lesson raises the spirits of the participants and the joy you see on people’s faces says it all. It is available for a couple more weeks on:- to beat/on demand/70184-001
You can also find it on catch up TV
Stay safe
