Woodland Sessions for People with Early-Stage Dementia

Week two of the Dementia Woodland Activity Sessions at Kinnoull Hill saw another great turn out including two new members. The sun came out, as did two red squirrels and a buzzard amid all of the sights and sounds of Spring and smell of wild garlic.

We still have plenty of room and would love to see some more new faces. If you know of anyone who could benefit from a lovely woodland walk, or you are a carer needing a bit of respite please join us. We meet on Thursdays at 10am  until 1pm at the Shed, Kinnoull Hill. Tea and biscuits are provided.
