The Pop In Place is 16 years old today

Sixteen   years   ago   today   Dr   Harley   opened   a   new   village   community   group called   the   “Pop   In   Place”   since   then   we   have   reached   out   to   hundreds   of people   of   all   ages   in   various   ways   through   the   Performers   Group   the Poppets   Group   and   the   Community   cafes   and   all   of   the   events   and   we have   raised   thousands   of   pounds   for   worthy   causes.   Today   I   would   like   to say   THANK   YOU   to   everyone   past   and   present   who   has   made   this   possible and   long   may   it   continue   to   enhance   the   lives   of   the   people   of   Bere Regis.

Reviewing Happy Memories café 3rd September

Thank   you   to   everyone   who   came   along   and   supported   the   Happy   Memories   Morning   at   the   Pop   In   Place   today.   We   had   a   great   turn   out   for   the   Old Bere   Regis   Photographic   Exhibition. Thank   you   to   Paul   and   Mark   Bennett   for   their   photographs   and   to   Dave,   Gill,   Julie   and   Sarah   who   helped   to   put up the displays. Paul   has   said   that   there   were   so   many   people   who   came   in   and   found   great   enjoyment   looking   at   the   Old   Photographs,   there   were   lots   of   people from   outside   the   village   that   had   once   lived   here   or   that   had   relatives   from   Bere   Regis   coming   in   with   lots   of   stories   and   he   had   a   wonderful   time just listening to all of them. We   as   a   family   feel   that   it   is      lovely   to   be   able   to   share   our   collection   of   Old   Bere   Regis   with   many   people   who   really   do   appreciate   them   and   the Memory Cafe has given the perfect opportunity to do that. Thanks   to   both   Lisa   Holmes   from   the Age   UK   Memory Advisory   Team   who   came   along   and   gave   a   short   talk   about   memory   loss   and   to      Keith   from the PPG who has supported all the Happy Memories  Cafe’s. Thank   you   to   all   the   people   who   made   the   superb   home-made   cakes   and   to   all   the   helpers   who   volunteered   in   whatever   capacity.   By   either   driving in   visitors,   welcoming   people,   serving   teas,   and   clearing   tables   and   washing   up   and   also   helping   to   pack   up   at   the   end.   Special   thanks   to   our   young volunteers from the Performers Group who also took an active role in that and to our very young volunteer for her brushing up skills. Terry   Bryant   was   great   and   really   got   everyone   thinking   about   old   theme   tunes   in   his   name   that   tune   game   and   then      there   was   all   the   old memorabilia   that   he   has   collected   over   the   years,   we   ended   up   with   a   good   old   sing   song.   Needless   to   say   Izzy   the   Pat   Dog   was   a   real   hit   with   the people both young and not quite so young. Speaking   to   many   of   the   visitors   from   other   places   they   were   quite   amazed   at   the   community   spirit   that   we   have   within   the   village   and   how people all pull together to stage such and interesting and worthwhile event.
