People in Cromer are urged to support and donate to the local branch of Parkinson's UK, ahead of the national research charity's awareness week, which runs from Monday, April 10 to Sunday, April 16.

This year marks the 200th anniversary of James Parkinson's first description of the condition which now bears his name. Every hour someone in the UK is diagnosed with Parkinson's, which still cannot be stopped, slowed down or reversed.

The branch meets on the second Wednesday of each month, 10.30am to noon, at St John Ambulance Hall, Bond Street, Cromer. It also runs monthly exercise sessions on the fourth Wednesday of the month from 1.30pm to 2.30pm at the hall. There is no charge, but people are asked to join Parkinson's UK, which costs £4 a year.

call secretary Arthur Windridge on 01263 515138, or visit the stand at the parish hall on Cromer's community open day on Saturday, April 29.
