Cafe serves up treat to end iso­la­tion

Rossendale Free Press - - Schools News -

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.

For more in­for­ma­tion about the cafe con­tact June Wors­ley on 07805 093348 or 07821 719145.
