Branch Meeting

On the last Thursday of every month there is a meeting held, open to all members and interested people, in Rugby United Reformed Church Hall from 2-4pm.

Each month we either have a guest  speaker on a range of general interest subjects ,or a social event such as a quiz,  followed by refreshments. It is a great opportunity for you to come along and meet other people affected by Parkinsons, chat about what helps, make friends , and find out more about what the branch has to offer from the people that are using the activities.

There is no charge, but there is a donation plate for the refreshments.


Carer’s Meeting

If your partner or relative has Parkinsons you may not think of yourself as a carer, but this group is designed for you. Being a partner , a friend or family member of someone with Parkinson’s can often make you feel a bit isolated, or feel a bit helpless, or at a bit of a loss as to where to get help and support. This group is there as a chance for you to come and chat to other carers, who understand that sometimes it is good to talk, they may have found ways of coping with a problem that has cropped up or you might be able to share your discoveries too.  Alongside a chance to sit and chat, we also invite in speakers from time to time, guided by what people need to know, about care issues such as finance, equipment, accessing services etc. Keep an eye out on the news page for news of speakers.

The group is run on the third Tuesday of each month at Age UK Claremont Centre Bath Street from 12-1pm. This meeting is at the same time as the exercise class, so that the person you care for can go and get some exercise, while you chat and have a cup of tea! The meeting is free and open to all.


Indoor Bowls

How is your aim? Do you relish a bit of light hearted competition?

Come and have a go at bowling-no previous experience required and all abilities are welcome, as we now have a special walking frame for use on the green. The only equipment you need are flat souled shoes and a sense of humour-bowls can be provided. The cost is £5 per two hour session.

It is held every Wednesday from 12-2pm at the Thornfield Indoor Bowls Club and is open to anyone with Parkinson’s in the Rugby area and their guests.

We take part in tournaments and also do outdoor bowls in the summer.

You might become our champion-come and have a go!


Outings

Each year we organise an outing to a local attraction for our members and their carers, which is subsidised by the branch for those with Parkinson’s and their carers. We aim to make this outing as accessible as possible, so that all our members can attend if they want to.

This year, on May 23rd , we have booked a canal boat trip for members. The trip will be on the river starting at Stratford Upon Avon, lasts about an hour and includes a cream tea. It is fully accessible and for those members with Parkinsons, their carers and past carers the cost is £12.50. The website for this is http://www.bancroftcruisers.co.uk/   if you would like to have a look. 

The cost for other people who would like to come will include a portion of the transport costs, but this depends on numbers and we will let you know as soon as we have those.

There is a sign up sheet available . Places are limited to 32 , and it is on a first come, first served basis.


Social Events

Annual Cream Tea

Here at Rugby we do like our cakes and this event has become a bit of a favourite. In the summer months we organise a cream tea at a local garden centre at a slightly subsidised rate for members. It’s a good chance to chat with friends, shop amongst the flowers and indulge our sweet tooth.


Barbecue.

Although this is one of our fund raising events, the annual barbecue, organised by Bill, is a great opportunity to socialise with the branch and bring along your family and friends. Let someone else fight the smoke and coals, and enjoy good food and good company!


Other Events.

Look out for our other events. We usually have a few skittles events in the year, a carer’s meal, and of course our Christmas Party, which is free to all our members, and includes entertainment and refreshments.


Holiday

We organise a short break holiday each year that is open to our members. Our main venue is a Warren holiday at Sinai Warren on Hayling Island with transport there being provided. For those members with Parkinson and their carers, there is a branch subsidy available. Sinai Warren is a fully accessible hotel, with full board, activities available, and situated in a lovely area near the sea.

Obviously, due to hotels getting booked very quickly, we have to start organising this in late Autumn, so keep a look out for news of the next holiday, but spare rooms will also be advertised in the news section if you have missed this year’s.
