More beautiful weather and I hope you are enjoying getting out and about. September brings World Alzheimer’s day and we will celebrate this with a dementia friendly screening at the Towner cinema. All welcome. Please try to attend as we would like to make this a regular event, but if people don’t attend then its not something we can plan on continuing. Digital Friends started and we have now had 2 sessions. Everyone is enjoying them and there are still places available if you would like to come along. So far we have looked at attachments, Facebook and learnt a little about different utility sites. We have a thank you for our volunteers coming up, so please let me know if you can attend. Most of our groups are now up and running so hope to see you all over the next few weeks.
