Cafe serves up treat to end isolation
A NEW weekly scheme targeted at socially isolated people has been launched in Bacup.
The dementia-friendly Reminiscence Cafe will be held every Thursday at Central Methodist Church on Burnley Road.
Organisers from Community Assets Standing Tall (CAST) say they will have guests coming in on some weeks for entertainment and if they can get enough support they can continue next year.
June Worsley, trustee of CAST, said they are trying to encourage people with dementia or their carers, and also people who are socially isolated to come along and get involved.
She said: “Does your neighbour live on their own? Bring them down.
“The more people we get the more chance there is of getting a better funding pot to carry on the project.”
The Reminiscence Cafe launched earlier this month and will run on Thursdays from 10.30am to 2.30pm, until Thursday, December 21.
Featuring simple, cheap food, people are encouraged to bring old vinyl records for a trip down memory lane.
