We held our second Memory Group in Wotton under Edge today. A lovely group of people to chat with. Before they played Uno and a quick little quiz we talked about what we would like to do as a group next year and several things were mentioned e.g. walking, exercising, Mens Shed, art and singing amongst other things. One member of the group offered to teach us all how to play the harmonica. Having dementia, or being a carer, does not always reduce a person’s interest in the things that they enjoy – our task is to make sure they have the opportunities to have a go – it is going to be an eventful 2016.

Meanwhile, we are off to a local pub for a Seasonal lunch next week, and on 22nd Katie Elliot is going to come and play piano for us.

Central heating is being installed at our venue next week, so we aim to be cosy and contented throughout the winter.
