What's on Memory Cafe Memory Cafe 1st and 3rd Monday of each month, 2.00pm - 4.00pm The Memory Café offers a chance to chat over a cup of tea and biscuits, take part in some creative activities and visit our beautiful clay works, nestled in woodland and historic industrial buildings - a real breath of fresh air! Each week we focus on a new theme and explore it through conversations around our memories, through craft activities and with games like bingo and quizzes. Please note there is no Memory Cafe in August. The Memory Café will resume on Monday 5 September, 2-4pm. Contact Gemma Martin to find out more and to register for the Memory Café.

It is a comfortable place to meet, socialise, get support and share information. The free sessions are light hearted and fun. Each session focuses on a different topic with a creative activity that links with the topic. The activities are designed to be stimulating, to use different senses and encourage cognitive functioning. There is never any pressure to join in with activities - some may want to join in while others may be happy to watch, enjoying a chat or simply taking a moment to sit back. There will be plenty of time for a cup of tea and biscuits, a chance to connect with others, have a chat and share experiences. Carers will be welcome to go off for a walk or visit the museum if they feel it is appropriate for their situation. We can also offer advice about activities to try at home.
