Well, that was a busy few weeks culminating in the SAND Away Day for the Action Group.
Once again, we went to Westhope College for our Away Day – this has become something of a tradition in a bit of a haphazard way – we never think about it until Spring and then one way or another we have a whole load of things to discuss at a more qualitative level than we can manage at our monthly meetings and so a full day in the glorious surrounds at Westhope recharges our batteries and gets the brain cells fully functioning!
This year saw a 100% turnout (pictured). the day started with our AGM and a big thank you to Les Woods, one of our Directors who stood down. Les was offered a new role as an honorary member of SAND, which he has happily accepted!
We all took part in a Dementia Friends Information session delivered by our own Dementia Champion, Heather. This is really important for us – and timely – as we are having an increasing number of conversations about dementia – and indeed will be hosting an acclaimed play: The Purple List in September, which was supported last year by Skills for Care. Do click on the link and book your ticket here – we are delighted to accept support from FBC Manby Bowdler Solicitors and Coverage Care to help this event to happen, and welcome further support if you are interested.
