Over the next few days, we will be updating the community calendar with programming for 2014 for dementiaCOMPASS and others in our community. Whilst that happens, here are some dates for your to note:
Wednesday 18 December
Festival of Trees, Wesley Church, Short Street
We will meet at 1pm for an informal viewing of the twenty-some Christmas trees decorated by local groups, organisations and companies including Dementia Compass, and remain for some festive refreshments in a reserved room.
Please let Edye know if you can stay for the refreshments, we want to be sure to have enough on hand for everyone.
Wednesday 8 January

Please join us for our carers lunch meeting when we’ll welcome Val Freestone, clinical specialist nurse in dementia for Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
