Bakewell Forget-Me-Nots - do you, or someone you know, have dementia or memory loss?

New Connections is delighted to be holding the first meeting of Forget-Me-Nots in Bakewell. The group will offer a reassuring, confidential and safe place to talk to others in a similar situation.

People have asked for an opportunity to meet with others and the team are really looking forward to bringing people together, getting to know them and using their ideas to shape the group and, of course, having fun along the way’.

Initially, Forget-Me-Nots will provide opportunities to chat, share information and reminisce through various means including music and photography.

Forget-Me-Nots will run on the first Wednesday of every month from 2nd August at Bakewell Methodist Church from 2-4pm.
