Afternoon Tea at Dunbar Garden Centre – 23 May 2019

What a lovely afternoon at Dunbar Garden Centre to celebrate the first anniversary of the official launch of Dunbar Dementia Network.  The  company was excellent, the tea was flowing and the cakes and savouries were delicious.

The afternoon was rounded off nicely, choosing some plants to donate to the Sanctuary Garden at The Backlands.  All in all, gorgeous weather, great company and food, with time spent in beautiful surroundings.

Dunbar Dementia Network Represented at Memorial Service – 25 April 2019

Our thanks to John & Dorothy Denholm for representing Dunbar Dementia Carers Support Group and Dunbar Dementia Network, at the unveiling of a memorial stone in honour of Pilot, Flying Officer, Harry Kenneth Lillington Rice (aged 21) and Navigator, Flying Officer, Aubrey John Clarke (aged 23), who died in the Beaufighter crash at Middle Monynut during WW2.  It was particularly fitting for Dorothy to attend as she was associated with the WRAC in her younger days.
