CHRISTMAS PARTY AT THE PEACHTREE INN PENRITH

Christmas Lunch this year was held at the Peachtree Inn.  Thirty of our Group celebrated the end of 2021 in style, the venue was great, the food was delicious and Mrs Clause (aka Robyn) hosted the event, with sequined Santa hat,  and lollybags to go.  Thankyou Robyn, and thanks everyone for coming along, and we are looking forward to resumption of our face-to-face events in January 2022.

Merry Christmas from our committee,  Viv, Terry, Robyn and Glenn. 

 

EVENTS FOR 2022.

We are resuming our face-to-face events in January.  All the regular events – dance, voice, Carers and Monthly Meetings will follow the previous years schedule.  Please check this homepage closer to time for details.  Contact Viv on 0404836921 for further information.

Our Support Group is extremely aware of the on-going presence of COVID-19 in our Community.

So our Committee has decided to be very cautious about in-person events for the rest of 2021.

Therefore, our Monthly Meeting at the Penrith RSL Club, our Dance Classes, Carer lunches and the Choir/Voice Exercise Classes will re-commence in January 2022. 

Please watch this space for updates.

 

This event is outdoors and presents a lesser risk for spreading COVID-19.

Local Government Seniors Achievement Award

One of the winners, Vivienne Ross, said she was humbled to receive the award, and pleased that it allowed her to shine a light on the Nepean Blue Mountains Parkinson’s Support Group.

“It’s important because there’s not a lot of awareness about Parkinson’s, and there’s so much information to give to people with Parkinson’s that we’re trying to connect with. Getting the word out to people that don’t know we’re around is important, so they can have some support, some information, and some social activities to help them manage their Parkinson’s better.”
