South Brent & District Caring at the Old School Community Centre:

Activity Coffee mornings fortnightly on Mondays (3 & 17 September) from 10.30am – 12.00noon, are very much appreciated by people who don’t get a lot of social contact and who love a chat, a game of something and a cuppa. Do drop in if you’re passing – it’s a good way to get a feel for some of the work SB&DC does.

Lunch Club fortnightly on Mondays (10 & 24 September - alternating with the coffee mornings) from 12.00-1.15pm providing lunch and company at a cost of £3.50.

South Brent & District Caring are now hosting a Memory Café and Carer’s Support Group twice a month in the Old School Community Centre, offering dementia information, support and structured activities for local people affected by dementia on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday afternoons from 2-4pm. Everyone is welcome:

The Memory Cafe is an activities-based group for adults who are being cared for and is open to anyone, not just those who have been diagnosed with Dementia.

The Carers’ Support Group runs alongside the memory Café and is open to anyone who is caring for a relative/friend for whatever reason. The support group will be the chance for carers to meet others who are in a similar position to themselves, to exchange stories and ideas and gain more information on what help is available to them. All of this whilst enjoying a tea or coffee.

olunteers are needed to help with all these activities (e.g. to set up/clear away, or to chat and play games etc.) – please contact Mandy, Viv or Jane on 01364 700282 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
