People in the Royston area who are affected by Parkinson’s disease are being invited to a support, advice and information day.

The event takes place tomorrow from 10.30am to 12.30pm at Coombes Community Centre on Burns Road in Royston and will give people the chance to drop in for a hot drink and meet others with the condition.

Parkinson’s UK members of staff will be on hand to answer questions and tell people about the services which are available in the area to sufferers and their families.

The degenerative neurological condition – for which there is currently no cure – affects 120,000 people in the UK and the main symptoms are tremor, slowness of movement and rigidity.

Parkinson’s UK support worker Vicki Symonds said: “Parkinson’s UK information days are a great opportunity to find out more about living with the disease, and the help and support that is available.
