Doors will open from 11am until 2pm, refreshments and a light lunch will be available to purchase at a minimal cost to all guests.

Their aim is to reduce loneliness by providing a welcoming and friendly atmosphere to join in fun activities and companionship specifically aimed at isolated community members, their families, carers and their loved ones.

With an ageing population, cases of dementia are increasing, which means that more and more people in the local area will be affected by the condition at some point in their lives.
