With Ruth's help and guidance members made autumn wreaths from fabric cut offs.

There were varying degrees of success, but members agreed it had been a great activity and all were interested to hear that Ruth had given a 'sprout wreath' to Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.

The support group meets at Bell Holt - Sanctuary Housing in Lisle Lane, CB7 4ED. on the third Tuesday afternoon in the month. Meetings run from 2.30-4.30pm.

The group offers information, friendship and support to local people with Parkinson's, their families and carers.
