Dementia Friendly Cafe Proposal

Dementia Friendly Cafe Proposal

Whilst the Community Council is in a bit of flux at the moment due to the elections currently in progress, we have been asked to add the following item to the agenda for our January meeting.

It is proposed to discuss the formation of a new dementia-friendly and well-being cafe, open to everyone, especially elderly residents living with isolation or bereavement. The cafĂ© will be called ‘CONNECTIONS’ and it will meet on a Monday afternoon from 2pm till 4pm at the Honeyman Hall in Bridge of Allan Parish Church.

The cafe will be seeking volunteers to help out on a Monday for a couple of hours. Volunteers may have to attend a small induction course on dementia which will be held locally. There will be no cost to the volunteer for the course. Please email shieldslinda@hotmail.com for more information and registering an interest in helping out.

Christmas Carol Singing – Provost’s Park

Christmas Carol Singing – Provost’s Park

Local drama group, SABOS Musical Theatre, are taking time out from rehearsing Calamity Jane to sing some well-known Christmas tunes when BofA’s festive lights get turned on. SABOS have been producing quality amateur theatre for more than 100 years. They have a wide range of members from the age of 7 to 70+, and are always happy to welcome new members onstage and behind the scenes. They had a hugely successful production of Oliver! in 2018 and are delighted to be returning to the Macroberts stage with Calamity Jane on 26th-30th March 2019. Come along to enjoy the music and lights – and who knows – you may feel inspired to join in with the singing!
