Pewsey Vale Care Cafe

Share

The first Pewsey Care Cafe (Memory Cafe) took place on Tuesday 16th June at the Scout Hut in Pewsey.    It was great fun and full of introductions as people got to know one another over a cup of tea, cake and biscuits.  We talked about life, news, how to make the perfect cup of tea and what the group would like to do in the coming months – so lots of ideas for us to work on.

The Care Cafe is a monthly cafe for those with dementia and their carers and is being run by the Pewsey Vale Dementia Awareness Group (PVDAG), part of PCAP.  It is for anyone who lives in the Pewsey Community Area and its immediate surrounds.

A real community initiative, the Cafe couldn’t have happened without the efforts of the members of the PVDAG, the support and generous donations as a result of our foray into Crowdfunding and the donation (every month) of refreshments by the Pewsey Spar Shop.

The full list of Care Cafe dates can be found here.

For more information about volunteering or attending the Cafe, contact pcap@hotmail.co.uk.

Gauging interest in a Pewsey Area Community Christmas Lunch

Share

This idea has come through the Pewsey Noticeboard on Facebook and Susan Connolly who runs the Spar Shop in Pewsey has stepped up to the plate to find out whether there is an appetite (no pun intended!) for a Christmas Day Lunch for residents of the Pewsey Community Area and to manage the event if there is sufficient interest.  This is targeted at any age group, for anyone who may find Christmas day a bit lonely or if they are unable to cook – or if they just want a bit of company.

All and any interest must be back with Susan by Friday 14th November (susan@spar-tidworth.co.uk) so that we can gauge whether there is sufficient interest to run the lunch.

There are two files:

This is a register type document that can be printed and put in your local shops/pubs/halls so people can sign up if they are interested.

This is a poster to advertise the idea which you can put on noticeboards/facebook pages/websites or use as you wish.

The mediator for the event was Patrick Wilson (Chair of Pewsey & District Chamber of Commerce; Vice-Chair of PCAP) and the speakers were as follows:
