A Social Afternoon by the Sea

Join Dementia Support Hampshire & IOW for a social afternoon by the sea!

We will be meeting at the Wheelhouse in Stubbington for the afternoon, so that you can enjoy some time by the sea. The Wheelhouse has toilet facilities and a kitchen where we will provide light refreshments throughout the afternoon.

Please bring a packed lunch or you can order some fish & chips from the local chippy for delivery. Enjoy a walk along the seafront, and maybe an ice cream!
