Jackie Farrell who runs Sutton Shakers reflects on their November meet-up.

It was lovely to see so many members at Sutton Shakers support group 12th November at Holiday Inn, Sutton. As well as 14 of our regular members we welcomed two new people. Apologies were given from those unable to attend.

Our group are a friendly bunch and enjoy learning about all the latest tremor news as well as socializing over refreshments. When hearing about Professor Findlay’s recent online talk on the use of “Spirals” for measuring tremor severity, they were keen to try to draw their own spirals. The photo shows their results and all agreed they thought it a good idea to keep them as a record! They also thought the idea of looking back over the years at hand writing may give them an indication of how their handwriting had changed with perhaps early characteristic signs of tremor!

Andy, one of our group is considering Focused Ultrasound surgery and had a recent private appointment with Professor Nandi at the Lindo wing St Mary’s Hospital, London to learn more about the procedure. We look forward to hearing the outcome.

Sutton Shakers next meeting Friday 14th January 2022, Holiday Inn, Sutton, 11am.
