But as a busy year draws to a close for members of The Ely and District Parkinson's UK Support Group it was time to celebrate Christmas.
The Rocking Ukuleles from St Ives again provided the festive entertainment and did so in great style said lead volunteer Caroline Nicklinson.
She said they had contributed to an enjoyable afternoon and members had tucked into a festive buffet and held a bumper draw.
She said their group was looking forward to a packed, informative and enjoyable programme in 2020.
Caroline also thanked all those who had supported the support group during 2019.
