This is a free event but booking is required. Please call 01420 481716.

 

Singing with Traci

Fun sing-along with singer/guitarist Traci Kennedy. Songs mainly from the 1960s and 1970s, but requests taken. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere where you can join in as little or as much as you like. If you’d prefer to just sit and listen, or maybe shake an instrument, then that’s OK too. This is NOT a choir.

There is a charge of £4.00 per person, which includes tea/coffee with biscuits – or even cake on special occasions !

Refreshments are available and free of charge. Games and activities can be played, with support from the volunteer Helpers, who are all “Dementia Friends”, an Alzheimer’s Society information initiative.

There are many table popular games, puzzles, as well as table tennis. Time at the Café can allow the family member and carer, to chat with others, and break down the barriers of isolation.
