For anyone affected by Parkinson’s and living in the Trowbridge area, the Drop-In cafe at Palmer Gardens has always been a lifeline.

Now, the Trowbridge Parkinson’s Group will be restarting meetings from Tuesday 28th September 2021, between 2.00 and 3.30pm at Palmer Gardens Cafe in Canal Road.  Anyone affected by Parkinson’s whether an individual, family or friend can drop in between these times for a chat & cuppa.  It is an informal & friendly place to be & Parkinson’s UK is delighted that it is starting up again.
