Thank you for the welcome it’s good to be here

Hi @Tam_the_gardener,

A warm welcome to the forum.

I’m sure you’ll make some great friends on the forum and will receive a lot of support from your fellow members. I just thought you’d be interested to know that we have a newly diagnosed section on the Parkinson’s UK website that you may find useful.

There’s a lot of information on this page regarding the help and support available to you so please take a look when you have a few minutes to spare.

All the best and I look forward to seeing you around on the forum.

Best wishes,
