Back in Oswestry for our first meeting of 2014!

Guest Speakers:

  • Dementia Friends Champions Sal Riding & Sonia Roberts will be doing a presentation on what a Dementia Friend is, how you can become a Dementia Friend. Why and what Dementia Friends are all about and why we need 1 million Dementia Friends in England by 2015. This session will include some training with the opportunity to be a Dementia Friend. As 2014 is the Year of Dementia, we feel raising awareness within SDN is important.
  • Guide Dogs: We will be giving a warm welcome to Lin Stapley and her Guide Dog “Woody” Lin will do a presentation about the difference having a Guide Dog makes to her life.

Note that now that we call our meetings “Members” meetings that does not mean guests are not welcome. So please bring guests along.

Note we will continue to hold a raffle at each of our meetings as this helps fund our meetings, £1 a strip and prizes are always welcome.
