Happy New Year to all our members, volunteers and supporters.
We held a coffee morning at the end of November to raise much needed funds for the Memory Café. I would like to thank everyone who helped and especially those people who attended. We have also been fortunate to get donations from the Rotary and the Cavaliers – a heartfelt thank you from everyone at the Memory Café.
In November we had a Christmas lunch at the Globe which started off our Christmas festivities – thanks to the staff for a wonderful meal. At the December meeting we were fortunate enough to be entertained by the Torridge Male voice choir, an exceptional performance which we all thoroughly enjoyed.
The February meeting is to be held at the Plough Arts Theatre and we will be having a presentation by the Cavaliers.
A Memory Café is a place where people with dementia and their families/friends can visit to support each other and share information and experiences. The Café provides a friendly, informal and relaxed atmosphere for visitors to drop by. You can enjoy a free cup of tea/coffee and some cake, meet others in similar circumstances, have the opportunity to talk with members of the healthcare team and get advice, information and support about living with dementia. Free leaflets are available. The cafe operates on a drop-in basis on the second Thursday of the month between 10.30am-12.30pm.
