Men and women living with dementia who like making things and working with tools will enjoy our new Memory Shed in Corsham.

The weekly Wednesday afternoon meetings will allow people to work on practical projects supported by trained volunteers.

The group is a partnership between Alzheimer's Support and the Brunel Shed, pictured above, which already holds its own twice-weekly meetings at the shed at the Potley and Pockeridge Community Centre.

Projects will include making bird boxes, memory boxes, wooden animals and, in the spring, raised flower beds. Members will also be supported to work on their own chosen projects.

Corsham Health and Wellbeing group is supporting the new dementia-friendly initiative and has given funds to buy specially adapted tools that are easier and safer to use. 

Call 01380 739055 or email Sarah to find out more.
