Hello ex pats! I have been looking and looking for a gym that is within walking distance from my home on Kleber, and all I've found is one in the Majestic Hotel, which costs 3500 per year!! Ouch!! Does anyone know of a good gym near me, with good treadmills? I'm a keen runner, have done 2 marathons, but I know myself: I won't train outdoors in winter, and really need a gym! Many thanks

Hello,Like most people, I'm looking for a doctor who is either Anglophone or speaks (at least understands) English. While my French is good and I have gone to French doctors, for the long-run (or until my French becomes excellent) I'd much rather be able to express myself when I'm sick and have the person understand me.I am looking for a GP in either Maisons-Laffitte/Le Mesnil le Roi or Sartrouville or Houilles.Any help would be really appreciated.Thanks!

Dear all, My friend and colleague's husband needs medical assistance and I offered to post on this board to see if anyone would be able to send us any recommendations about doctors and hospitals to contact in case the situation develops into an emergency. Contact information for hospitals, general practitioners, dermatologists, and dentists is especially welcome. I know that several people have already posted on this topic, but since people are not allowed to post names and contact details on the forum pursuant to French law, I was hoping someone would be able to e-mail them to us.We have of course already been in contact with consulates but any personal recommendation would be very helpful.Thank you so much for your kind assistance and consideration!

Jenny Green successfully completed her journey by mobility buggy from central Paris to central London! Nine days of travelling, up to 8 hours per day on her buggy, coping with heat, gale force winds, rain, not to mention sheer exhaustion. Jenny's two sons Mark & Bobby cycled all the way from Paris to London with her, and on reaching the English coast other family members and friends joined in.The object of Jenny's journey? To raise funds for research into MND (Motor Neurone Disease) which currently has neither treatment nor cure.To learn more about Jenny and her Challenges, visit www.jennygreenchallenge.org and please consider making a donation to her fund, no matter how small. Every centime counts!Thank you to Angloinfo for your support,Jill

I'm a fellow AI user but based in the south east of France and I am very much in need of your help.A very good friend of mine who suffers from Motor Neurone Disease is planning to travel from Paris to London using off-road / cycle routes in order to raise funds for research into this horrendous disease. Jenny will travel on her Tramper, an electric buggy. Her journey starts on Sunday 22 May, ideally at Notre Dame, travelling alongside the Seine to the Eiffel Tower and heading out of the city via the Bois de Boulogne. Here is where your help is required. Is there anyone who could provide us with detailed information which takes account of all potential hasards for a disabled traveller? Jenny will be accompanied on the entire journey by cyclists, fellow disabled, and a support group. So on another note, if anyone would like to join her, please get in touch.For more info about Jenny and MND, check out her website www.jennygreenchallenge.orgThanks!Jill

Are there any mental health support groups in Paris for English or for French speaking people? I am thinking of groups like cancer support groups, but in thise case, for people with on-going emotional and psychological issues. Are there any women's groups that specialize in this kind of support? They can be either French or English speaking.
