I suppose its fair to say that it has in many ways exceeded all expectations. I wish that she were still here to witness and enjoy it today, but in some ways she always will be, her name is so often mentioned and her spirit lives on in everything that is good and positive we do.   I would also like to thank my husband Paul, and my family, for the way they have allowed me to see this dream come true and supported me throughout. I could not have coped without them.  Finally The Pop In Place has a very poignant logo - "Bringing the community together" and this we believe we have done in a very special way. And that is down to every single person that has been involved in every single way. Thank you all." Alison Bennett.

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
