LymeForward launches a memory café for Lyme Regis and the local area on Wednesday 21st February 2018 . Meet and Remember will take place between 2.00pm and 3.30pm on the third Wednesday of each month, at the Lyme Regis football pavilion in Charmouth Road, Lyme Regis. The pavilion, the use of which has been donated by the football club, has fantastic facilities following its recent refurbishment and free parking.
The café, which will be run by volunteers, will provide a supportive, friendly environment for those experiencing memory loss or who have recently been diagnosed with dementia and the friends/relatives/carers who support them. We are fortunate to have a group of Woodroffe sixth formers who are also volunteering their time in a variety of ways, including baking cakes!
The sessions will be a mixture of music, crafts, memory activities, talks and information about dementia, general interest talks and outings. Information and advice will also be available. There will be tea, coffee and cake! Financial support for these resources has been received from Lyme Regis Carnival and Rotary.
There will be a small lending library that will include books with information about dementia and reading books that can be accessed by those with memory loss and their families and friends. Any donations of suitable books would be welcome.
