Thank you for your support for making Portswood dementia friendly. We are planning to launch the dementia friendly work during the Open Garden on Saturday 16th May with Councillor Linda Norris attending. This is to update you with actions during dementia awareness week and to ask you to share this with a friend who may be interested in becoming a dementia friend.

There are also two dementia friends sessions being held in Highfield Church Centre:

– Tuesday 2nd June 7.30-8.30pm

Obviously both with refreshments!!
