Specialist nurses will be on hand to respond to queries alongside staff from Parkinson’s Scottish Office.

Teas and coffees will be provided before a short performance from Singing for Fun with Parkinson’s.

Dr Connor Maguire, chair of Lothian Parkinson’s Services Advisory Group, will give a brief update on local developments.

Around one in every 500 people are affected by Parkinson’s and can impair function for both movement and communication.

The event is free of charge and takes place from noon to 2.30pm. If you are unable to attend or would like information on the support group, contact Elaine on 01506 857272 or Barbara on 01506 853891, or email wlsupportgroup@aol.com
