Memory Cafe Re-opening

Liskeard Memory Cafe

15 February 2022

Liskeard Area Memory Café is re-opening on Friday 4th March from 2:15 to 4:15 pm when we will be celebrating our 12th Birthday.

This will be the first Café since March 2020 as, in discussions between both the Committee and the Members, there has been almost unanimous agreement the risks of meeting during the pandemic were too high.

The first meeting, and for even longer, Covid protection measures such as social distancing, wearing of face masks, disinfecting tables ahead of the meeting, provision of hand gel will be put in place and encouraged.

The Memory Café meets at the Wesley Methodist Church Hall on the first Friday of every month, apart from January, from 2:15 to 4:15 p.m. We welcome all people with memory related issues, whether living on their own or accompanied by their Carer.

The first hour of every session is either entertainment from a guest artist, a workshop session such as flower arranging or dance and movement, but may also be Art and Craft sessions, board and indoor games, etc. The second hour is more informal with tea and cakes provided, time to chat, a raffle and the chance to win a small prize via a quiz. We also provide much useful information, including signposting useful contacts that can help members in many ways.

We are always looking to welcome new members, as well as volunteers and sponsors. If you are at all interested, please contact us via telephone on 07716 787575 or 07468 698153.
