Our activities are only possible due to the commitment of our volunteers and the donations we gratefully receive. If you have any feedback we are always happy to listen.
“Our Community Groups are there to be enjoyed by anyone living with dementia or experiencing difficulties with their memory, including their families and friends.
All are welcome; people who can attend independently and/or for those unable to do so should come with a companion who can provide any support for them.
We don’t provide transport for these groups and therefore it is your responsibility to get to and from this community activity, safely”.
Our community activities request a suggested donation of £2 in order to cover costs for facilities and refreshments.
