About our activities
Our sessions challenge the notion that people with dementia can’t learn and enjoy new things. Our members can and do learn and have fun, as long as there are no distractions and delivery is clear.
Our classes are run by professional tutors who are skilled in delivering training to our members and are experts in a variety of activities such as art, gardening, golf, archery, singing, drumming, tennis, volleyball and pottery.
We have a monthly programme of trips to local venues. Recent venues have included:
Woodhorn Colliery Museum
Kirkley Hall Zoo
Pantomime at the Tyne Theatre & Opera House
National Trust Gibside
Birds of Prey Centre
We also hold social events such as our Christmas party and our annual Ceilidh where members and their families can celebrate, dance and enjoy time together
Each session currently costs £12. You can pay as you go or choose to be invoiced at the end of the month. All the Board members are approachable and would be happy to discuss any individual financial restrictions that may hinder attendance. In most cases, booking for sessions is not required and members only pay for sessions attended.
