Drop In Centre

The monthly Drop In for People with Parkinson’s has been one of the longer-established activities run by the Branch. In the early days there was a South Edinburgh meeting as well as one for North Edinburgh. The former closed in 2009 due to dwindling numbers and the North Edinburgh one has reached a similar position despite enticements with informal speakers. The Drop In’s were introduced to provide an opportunity for PwP’s and anyone they wished to bring along, to socialise and share experiences. However, the Branch now has many more activities available for Members to meet, interact and share that we feel the Drop In concept has run its course for the moment. We are certain that those who benefitted from the sessions will share in the Committee’s extended thanks to all the volunteers involved in running the Drop In’s over a considerable number of years.
