Friday Café – Dementia friendly

Friday Café is a free Dementia friendly café, for anyone who would like to socialise from any of the surrounding villages. It’s funded by donations and run by volunteers.

We meet in Withyham, Kings’ Hall, once a month on the 2nd Friday of the month, launching on 11th March 2022.

The dates for 2022 are:

  • 11th March
  • 8th April
  • 6th May
  • 10th June
  • 8th July
  • 12th August
  • 9th September
  • 14th October
  • 11th November
  • 9th December

Tea, coffee and cake will be served in the first half an hour with time to chat, followed by a memory provoking or craft activity for the next hour.

Most of our volunteers will have taken part in the Dementia awareness training with ‘Dementia Friends’ and will be proud to wear their ‘Dementia Friends’ badges.

We ask that all carers or family members stay with the person they are bringing if they have Dementia and are not independent. We hope that they will also join in and have some fun and meet new friends.

Please contact Julie Ruse on 07584 013763 if you have any questions or would like to attend, so we can gage a rough idea of numbers.

There is a Consent Form to be filled in by everyone attending their first meeting, to give permissions for us to hold contact details and to use photographs. It can be downloaded here and either bought along on your first visit or emailed to me at

We look forward to welcoming you.
