Memory Tree @ Burley This new group was launched at the Parish Centre on the 18th May and will now run on the 1st and 3rd Thursday afternoons each month. The next session is on Thursday 19th October at 2pm. This event is for people with dementia and another person, probably a family member. The two-hour session includes time together and time apart with lots of activities. Please get in touch for more information if you are interested in attending or volunteering in this new venture.
Open event with two speakers, and tea and cake We had a really good event on Sunday 21st May in the Parish Centre when we were joined by Dr Penny Wright, who talked about her research into the quality of life of people caring for someone with dementia, and by Julie Simpson of Alzheimer's Society who talked about services available in our area.
