South Brent & District Caring: fortnightly (Mondays 9 & 23 April) Activity Coffee mornings at the Old School Community Centre on Mondays from 10.30am – 12.00noon, hosted by South Brent & District Caring 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.

The coffee mornings alternate with the fortnightly Lunch Club (Mondays 16 & 30 April) which provides lunch and company every other Monday from 12.00-13.15 in the Old School at a cost of £3.50.

Starting on Tuesday 17 April 2018, twice a month in the Old School Community Centre, South Brent & District Caring will be hosting a Memory Café and Carer’s Support Group 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.


Volunteers 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.
