We had a great day at the Carers Road Show in the Butter Market at Retford Town Hall on 8th October and while we were there we met some wonderful people. We met the guys and gals from The Wednesday Group and we wanted to tell you a little bit about the great work they are doing.

The Wednesday Group offers people who might be worried about their memory to may have a diagnosis of dementia the opportunity to socialise in a friendly and supportive environment.

Individuals are welcome to their weekly meetings at The Goodwin Hall, Retford and you can come alone, bring a carer or family member. A light lunch follower by tea, coffee and biscuits is served just after it starts at 12.00am and there are more refreshments throughout the afternoon.

Activities vary from week to week and the group tries to reflect the interests of the members so they are always open to suggestions. So far they have included table top games, craft work and quizzes. The Wednesday Group also hopes to have other entertainment and speakers, HomeCareDirect are hoping to talk to the group soon and we will let you know when we have a date set.
