Pioneer Projects:
http://www.pioneerprojects.org.uk/
I  called  in  at  St  John’s  church Hall this morning and was really
impressed with the work of Pioneer Projects.  They have space for more
people – new members welcome.

If  you  know  someone  who would welcome attending sessions 10am-3pm
specially  designed  for  people  with memory loss or dementia, please
tell  them  about it. You might know a carer, or have a neighbour or a
friend who has a relative with dementia.

They    have  brilliant  art   activities  in  the  morning and a very
popular and successful music and movement session in the afternoon.
Home cooked food is served at lunchtime.

People  do  have to pay – but it it is worth it for the activities and
enjoyment involved.

A  lady  from  “Continued  Care”  is  here all day in case people have
personal needs.
——————————

I  might  send  another  events email out very shortly  – so if You want
me to add anything let me know.

If  you  do  not  wish  to receive these “Events around Settle” emails
please let me know
