Come and try us out ? !        Post Covid our first Cafe was 5th November 2021.

A Memory-Cafe is where there is a warm welcome for people with dementia or other problems associated with memory loss (and their families / carers), who's new memories may be partial and confusing. The aim is to evoke old memories that are complete and comfortable through, for example, refreshments in china cups, photos and documents from past years, songs and poems and informal talks.
