March’s memory café went with a buzz despite having to cancel the activity.
A presentation took place for John Portman who has now retired from being our Volunteer Fundraiser and we are still trying to recruit for this post, so if you would like to be part of a committed team of volunteers to provide this valuable service then please get in touch. We are also looking for volunteers to help with memory café – if you can spare two hours a month then please contact me.
We are looking forward to this month’s meeting where Annie Brierley will be reading short stories and poems. This will invoke memories and raise discussions and should be a very enjoyable activity.
Dementia Awareness week takes place in May. Along with the Alzheimer’s Society we are planning to have an information giving presence in the town square on Thursday 23rd May so do come along and find out more. The theme of this week is “Worry changes nothing. Talking changes everything”.
May’s café meeting will be on Thursday 9th when David Clinch will be playing guitar and pipes to entertain us all. Do come along and join in the fun as well as being able to access relevant information and discuss concerns with professional NHS staff.
