We have a very friendly group here at Redruth Memory Café. Some people attend on their own, others come along with partners or family members. There is no obligation to do any of the activities. Some people like to join in with whatever is going on, others just like to sit and chat. We start off with tea/coffee/squash and biscuits and there is always a quiz, word searches and The Sparkle reminiscence magazine on all the tables for anyone who is interested. Then we have an activity of some sort from about 2pm to 3pm. Usually this is an entertainer as we have found that our group really enjoy having a singer to entertain them. We finish off with a raffle, answers to the quiz for those who did it and more tea/coffee/squash and cakes. There is no charge for attendance or the refreshments and just £1 for extra raffle tickets, the first one being free. There is free parking behind the community centre. In the months when there are 5 Wednesdays, we do a “5th Wednesday of the Month” treat which could be a cream tea somewhere or something similar. At Christmas we take our members out for a Christmas lunch the cost of which is again covered by cafe donations.
