A growing success 

Reepham Rotary Club, working with others in the community, has launched a cafe in Reepham 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. 

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 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. There will also be a ‘taster’ session on 9 September for people to try out the idea and see if it suits them. 

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.

In these difficult times, we work hard to ensure safety. Ventilation is assured and sanitation provided. All attending are asked to be fully vaccinated and take a lateral flow test on the morning or the day before.
