Tap or click most images for a larger view When   Tina   &   I   used   to   sit   in   my   kitchen   and   put   the world   to   rights   and   decided   to   forge   ahead   with   the idea   of   the   Pop   In   Place,   little   did   we   know   that   it would   have   touched   all   the   lives   of   the   people   that are involved today. I   suppose   its   fair   to   say   that   it   has   in   many   ways exceeded   all   expectations.   I   wish   that   she   were   still here   to   witness   and   enjoy   it   today,   but   in   some   ways she   always   will   be,   her   name   is   so   often   mentioned and   her   spirit   lives   on   in   everything   that   is   good   and positive we do. I   would   also   like   to   thank   my   husband   Paul,   and   my family,   for   the   way   they   have   allowed   me   to   see   this dream    come    true    and    supported    me    throughout.    I could not have coped without them. Finally   The    Pop   In   Place   has   a   very   poignant   logo   - "Bringing   the   community   together"   and   this   we   believe we   have   done   in   a   very   special   way.   And   that   is   down to   every   single   person   that   has   been   involved   in   every single way. Thank you all." Alison Bennett.

One thing you can be sure of is that you will be made very welcome.  For more information on all various activities that we provide please click on the appropriate links above.   Our Team Leader Alison Bennett, Paul Bennett and Lyn Simmonds became Dementia Friends and part of our pledge that day was to make other people more aware of the disease and how to have a better understanding.    We set up a Dementia Friends session on Friday 10th July 2015 open to anyone who wants to attend it lasts about one hour and will be useful to anyone who is part of an organisation or a business or simply an individual that comes into contact with people with dementia.  You will get a certificate and a badge for attending but better than this the next time you meet someone with dementia you will have a better knowledge of what it is like for people to live with, this is  when understanding can turn into action. Currently there are approximately one million people in the UK that are Dementia Friends  with the know how to help people with dementia feel understood and included in their communities.   On Friday the 10th of July 22 2015 people became dementia Friends in a session run by the Pop In Place, this is in addition to the 12 that have previously done the session and anyone who has done it elsewhere or individually, so it’s very encouraging to think that 33 plus have made that effort to understand what living with dementia is like. Many of the local businesses and organisations were represented and it was a wonderful step forward for Bere Regis becoming much more dementia friendly  Left click or tap on most images to enlarge
