2018 -19

Here's a brief summary of what we did in 2018

Wonderful sounds rang out at the Vale of Belvoir Memory Café in October as it was a special treat to listen to the amazing Solfa choir consisting of five ladies accompanied by Rob their pianist. Their leader Anne Robson led the choir in well known songs some from shows and films and it was delightful to listen to their perfect harmonies.

Each monthly meeting has a different theme to encourage the attendees to participate and recall events and memories from the past and stimulate involvement

Most meetings have ausio visuals and often artefacts to encourage participants to recall major things that have happened in their lifetime.

This month the afternoon began with Chris Henley encouraging everyone to think about words and letters and there was great participation from the attendees as they tried to recall girls and boys names for every letter of the alphabet and recall many old TV programmes based on words such as Blankety Blank.

The Memory café  is held on the last Thursday of the month in Cotgrave Church is run by Rotarians from the Rotary Club of the Vale of Belvoir supported by many Rotarian wives and is for people suffering from early Dementia or Alzheimer’s and their carers. Half way through the meeting afternoon tea is served consisting of delicious sandwiches and scrumptious homemade cakes.

The meetings are held on the last Thursday of each month, last for about 2 hours and all age groups are encouraged to attend.
