We are holding some Dementia Friends information sessions here at Winton House Centre for anyone that would like to know more about dementia, and what it is like to live with it. This is primarily for our volunteers but open to anyone else that would like to know more. To book a place (it’s free) please contact Sheridan in the office.
A big thank you to everyone that donated items, and everyone that came to buy them, at our Big Marvellous Second Hand Sale. We raised £500 which is a fantastic amount! It was also a great way to recycle items that were no longer wanted and give them a new home.
We had a fantastic turn-out at our Annual Meeting which saw the room packed with volunteers, representatives from other organisations. and the Town Mayor. Our Chairman, Ric Girdlestone, told the audience of several new initiatives undertaken by Winton House including the monthly Memory Cafe and a new food waste initiative in partnership with M&S whereby Winton House redistribute the food to charities across the town. The Manager, Sheridan Rocher, gave a lively and entertaining talk entitled 'What do we do?'. A question often asked about Winton House. The meeting finished with Jeff Williams, of the Alzheimers Society, giving details of how the Memory Cafe forms part of the wider Dementia Friendly Petersfield scheme.
