The Annual Conference kicks off

Rachel RaymondThe Parkinson's Disease Society's Annual Conference starts today in Stratford-upon-Avon. There is a great atmosphere here as branch members, volunteers and staff meet and talk.

It's a popular event, and although places are limited - and completely filled - we make sure representatives can be here from as many branches and support groups as possible. It is a rare chance to share ideas, tips and advice, which is a really valuable part of the conference.

This year delegates can take part in workshops on research, campaigning and branch standards - and there's even a laughter workshop and Pilates class. There will be presentations on where the PDS is headed - and this year being our 40th Anniversary we'll be looking back on our successes too.

But it's not all work - I'm looking forward to Saturday night's karaoke session after the Gala dinner and dance, often an event to remember!

Updates from the conference will be posted on Twitter, Facebook and on our website

Rachel Raymond is Director of Community Services at the Parkinson's Disease Society
