Parkinson’s UK’s Buckhurst branch made the move from their old location at Chigwell Hall in High Road, Chigwell, to the Broadmead Baptist Church in Chigwell Road, Woodford Green, and welcomed Ilford North MP Lee Scott.

Other esteemed guests included chief executive of Parkinson’s UK Steve Ford and Mayor Ashley Kissin - who cut the ribbon and declared the much needed larger location open.

The Buckhurst branch provides support for carers and Redbridge residents suffering from the condition.

The group also put on trips for their 150 plus members and a weekly keep fit class, which the new space will be used for.

“We can move forward and do even more with the space.”

She added: “Being part of the group makes people, who are affected by the condition, feel that they’re not alone.”
