I   am   delighted   to   announce   that   we   have   raised   £700   for   the   Alzheimer's Society who are leading the fight against dementia. This   sum   is   a   reflection   of   the   generosity   and   kindness   expressed   by   the people who attended and an excellent total for a very worthy cause. Thank you all.

Memory Morning Old Photograph Exhibition

"Over the Rainbow" – a great success!

July 3rd Thank   you   to   everyone   who   supported   ”   Over   the   Rainbow   ”   it   really   was   a   wonderful   show   and   I   am   very   pleased   that   £600   was   raised   for   the British Heart Foundation.
July 3rd Memory Morning Friday 15th July 10 am until 12 noon in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society You   are   all   invited   to   a   special   memory   morning   at   the   Drax   Hall,   entry   fee   £1.   This   is   a   coffee   morning   with   a   difference,   where   the   lower   hall will   be   a   photographic   Exhibition   displaying   photos   depicting   memories   of   old   Bere   Regis,   arranged   by   Paul   Bennett   and   John   Pitfield.   In   the upper   Hall   there   will   be   stalls   and   a   raffle   etc   and   during   the   course   of   the   morning   Tony   Bates   will   be   showing   you   a   presentation   entitled   “All things   bright   and   beautiful   in   Bere   Regis”   and   a   slide   show   by   Michael   Eastment   of   all   his   amazing   old   images   of   the   village.   Please   support   this event   as   it   promises   to   be   something   very   interesting   and   it   is   in   aid   of   a   very   worthy   cause.   We   look   forward   to   seeing   you   there.   If   anyone   can help   with   making   cakes   or   donating   raffle   prizes   or   delivering   advertising   please   give   me   a   call. A   person   who   was   suffering   with   dementia   wrote the   following   poem   and   it   really   helps   others   to   understand   their   thoughts   and   fears.   I   found   it   on   the Alzheimer’s   Society   Website   and   I   would like, if I may to share it with you, in the hope that we can all become more aware and understanding of this disease. Love me till my life is done … Do not ask me to remember, don’t try to make me understand, let me rest and know you’re with me, Kiss my cheek and hold my hand. I’m confused beyond your concept, I am sad and sick and lost, all I know is that I need you to be with me at all cost. Do not loose your patience with me, do not scold or curse or cry, I can’t help the way I’m acting, can’t be different though I try. Just remember that I need you, that the best of me is gone, please don’t fail to stand beside me, love me till my life is done. Although   this   is   a   very   heart   wrenching   insight   into   someone’s   suffering,   the   wonderful   news   is   that   there   is   a   lot   of   hope   for   people   now   that are   diagnosed   with   Alzheimer’s   and   Dementia   and   this   is   achieved   through   medical   research   and   then   of   course   the   memory   cafes   and   the valuable   practical   support   given   by   the Alzheimer’s   Society. All   this   needs   funding   and   that   is   where   we   can   all   help,   please   support   the   Pop   In Place Memory Morning on the 15th July 10 am at the Drax Hall and join with the Alzheimer’s Society who are leading the fight against dementia.
