Second Cafe in Haywards Heath!

This gallery contains 5 photos.

This week the Mayor of Haywards Heath, Cllr James Knight, opened our second cafe in Haywards Heath. We have teamed up with St Richards Church to bring the new cafe about. We all had a fabulous afternoon with Jim from Full Beam Productions who got us all singing and dancing the afternoon away. We are looking forward to the next cafe on Tuesday 27th February from 2.30 pm in the church hall at St Richards Church.

Christmas Tree Festival

This week it’s the Henfield Café and we are sharing it with the Christmas Tree Festival in #Henfield. Along with viewing all the wonderfully decorated Christmas trees in the café and church, including our own Know Dementia tree, we will be joining in with the carol singing. Come and see our tree and make a Christmas wish or memory and hang it on the tree. Evangelical Free Church Hall, Henfield High Street from 2pm to 4pm.

Christmas Extravaganza 2017

What a fantastic time we all had at this year’s Christmas Extravaganza.  We enjoyed Christmas tunes sung to us by the amazing Victory Vs and joined in with beautiful songs from our very own Jazzled choir.  We also enjoyed a delicious afternoon tea and the raffle raised around £300.  Thank you to everyone for their support and to all the volunteers who helped make it happen.

Spooky Times

Busy week with lots going on at our Memory Moments Cafés in East Sussex. At our Buxted café it was a bit spooky as café members dressed for Halloween and were treated to a musical spooktacular by Full Beam Productions. Our fluffy rabbit friends paid us a visit at Uckfield and loved our cuddles.
