A growing success 

Reepham Rotary Club, working with others in the community, launched a cafe in Reepham in September 2021 for those living with memory loss and their carers.  This is held from 10 am to 12 noon on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month. 

The Club has proved popular with a growing number of people who come along and enjoy each other’s company.  Thank you to the volunteers from Reepham Rotary and elsewhere in the community who come to help. 

The cafe offers a warm, welcoming and friendly atmosphere with music, games and entertainment together with tea, coffee and cake. Visitors have enjoyed seated pilates for exercise, visiting singers and the music of the ukulele band. 

There is no membership, regular fees or any obligation to visit. Anyone with a need can turn up on the day and be assured of a warm welcome. 

Since the project was launched, there have been many expressions of interest from the community – from people who see a need to those who would like to come and help in some way. Anyone is welcome to get in touch with the organisers. carolynnpeter@btinternet.com

Recently regular visitors Joy Flint celebrated her 100th birthday with us and brought along her royal greetings for us to see.
