The Andover Parkinsons Support Group became a fully fledged branch of Parkinsons UK, at an inauguration event in the Bridge Street Methodist Church.

A packed hall was welcomed by the Reverend John Beadle, Minister of Bridge Street Methodist Church, and then the Chair was taken by Judith Sexton, Chairman elect of the Andover branch. A keynote speech was given by Steve Ford, who welcomed Andover branch to Parkinsons UK, and presented a certificate of inauguration. In his remarks, Steve outlined the importance of integrated support for Parkinsons sufferers, enabling them to take more control over their own lives. He also wanted more research into neurological illnesses, and spoke to Sir George about the importance of work capability assessments recognising that Parkinsons sufferers had good days and bad days.

Also at the inauguration ceremony was Cllr Jan Lovell, Deputy Mayor of Test Valley Borough Council and Cllr Iris Andersen. A cheque from the 3 Amigos Charity was presented by Maureen Faill, Jenny Gow and Mark Lazenby.
