Sheringham Dementia Friendly Community continues to work hard with the local organisations to ensure we can make all aspects of the community as dementia accessible as possible. Our Community Building Signage Project is an example of this with the Lighthouse and the Salvation Army Church now having in place dementia accessible signage. The Town Council have also agreed to incorporate this into the Community Centre as have St. Peters Church. Projects such as this are only possible from the money we receive in Grants and donations and our own fundraising. SDFC were therefore very pleased to receive £300 from the Masons in Sheringham and also £100 from Jimmy and Pauline Wegg who celebrated their diamond wedding and donated to SDFC rather than receive presents. Donations such as this play an important role in funding all our activities and we are very grateful for them.
April the 10th at the Salvation Army Hall at 7pm is the AGM of SDFC and is a good opportunity to find out what we have been doing over the last year and our plans for the future. If you would like to be involved in any way we would love to see you. Back by popular demand is our Moon Memory Walk kindly supported by Sheringham Carnival. Start getting your human and canine teams together for the Friday evening of 24th May and why not enter the same team into our SDFC Quiz at the Two Lifeboats on the Wednesday 22nd May 7.30pm . It’s always a good night and exercising that brain is the best way of reducing your risk of developing dementia.
