Performer of the Year Competition Saturday 10th

September 6pm…

July 31st Have you booked your ticket for the Performer of the Year Competition on Saturday 10th September ? We are all working hard in the Performers Group to ensure that there are some great acts for this very special evening. The senior girls are working on a dance to Madonna’s ” Hung Up ” and are doing very well indeed the youngest members of the group are learning to do Hula dancing and the middle group are Rock and Rolling with great enthusiasm . The youngsters are also working on their individual acts and these promise to be very entertaining as always. There are some special effects being worked on and a quite memorable whole group number, when you will be left feeling like it was all a bit of a surreal experience. During this evening we will also be presenting our Volunteer Awards, this is always a very moving occasion and we have some very worthy winners again this year, as always it is an opportunity to show how much we appreciate the hard work and dedication of all of our volunteers. TO ENTER THE COMPETITION Entries are £5 per person and close on the 10th August Phone Julie Lye 01929 472069 or call into the Pop In Place for an Entry Form. For Tickets at £5 each call me Alison Bennett 01929 472023.

Memory Morning Old Photograph Exhibition…

July 15th Thank you so much to everyone who supported the Memory Morning at the Drax Hall in aid of The Pamela Hoare Tribute Fund set up in conjunction with The Alzheimer's Society. We have had an amazing response with many people coming along to view the Exhibition of Old Bere Regis and supporting the stalls in the Upper Hall. Many thanks to Tony Bates and to Michael Eastment for the rolling slide shows that they provided for this event. Thanks also to Paul Bennett and John Pitfield for the wonderful old images of the Village. We at the Pop In Place are so fortunate to have such a great team of willing helpers who have donated raffle prizes, made cakes, helped with the setting up and the packing away for the event and were very busy during the previous weeks letterboxing flyers. 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.

"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

Memory Morning Old Photograph Exhibition…

This was a coffee morning with a difference, where the lower hall was 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 cafés 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.
