This is a very special production as it is Pastor Jim's last script and also will be raising much needed funds for Bere Regis Church Roof.  We are pleased to announce that the Pop In Place will hold a Great Get Together on Friday 16th June from 10am until 12 noon along with our MP at the Upper Drax Hall . It will be a very simple format CAKE COFFEE and MUSIC I am looking for some local musician to play for us during these two hours if you can help out with this please let me know.   New Foot Clinic at the Pop In Place (On Mondays every six weeks) We are working with Age Uk to try to problem solve some of the issues that surround the over 50’s living in the village. Please if you are having trouble cutting your toe nails do come along and see Julie Clayton, we are holding a new foot clinic at the Pop In Place in the foyer screened off for your privacy. Appointments are by booking only so do give Julie a call on 07855097184 she will give you the details , after you have purchased your own kit at £12.50 the cost per time will be £12.50   We are a vibrant community group catering for people of all ages. Our activities are diverse and anyone can join in as much or as little as they wish. We have no subscriptions and whether you just want to Pop In for a chat or become a member of the Team of volunteers that organise the sessions and the events, it is completely up to you. One thing you can be sure of is that you will be made very welcome.  For more information on all various activities that we provide please click on the appropriate links above.   Last summer Alison Bennett, Paul Bennett and Lyn Simmonds became  Dementia Friends and part of our pledge that day was to make other people more aware of the disease and how to have a better understanding.    We set up a Dementia Friends session on Friday 10th July 2015 open to anyone who wants to attend it lasts about one hour and will be useful to anyone who is part of an organisation or a business or simply an individual that comes into contact with people with dementia.  You will get a certificate and a badge for attending but better than this the next time you meet someone with dementia you will have a better knowledge of what it is like for people to live with, this is  when understanding can turn into action. Currently there are approximately one million people in the UK that are Dementia Friends  with the know how to help people with dementia feel understood and included in their communities.   On Friday the 10th of July 22 2015 people became dementia Friends in a session run by the Pop In Place, this is in addition to the 12 that have previously done the session and anyone who has done it elsewhere or individually, so it’s very encouraging to think that 33 plus have made that effort to understand what living with dementia is like. Many of the local businesses and organisations were represented and it was a wonderful step forward for Bere Regis becoming much more dementia friendly  Left click or tap on most images to enlarge
