A NEW memory café called Meet and Remember was launched by LymeForward last week.

The memory café sessions offer help and support to those suffering memory loss and in the early stages of dementia.

Sessions will be held on the third Wednesday of every month at Lyme Regis Football Club from 2pm, with the venue having been donated free of charge.

Other funders of the café include the Rotary Club of Lyme Regis, and Lyme Regis Regatta & Carnival Committee.

The first session last Wednesday saw many volunteers offering their support, including a group of sixth form students from the Woodroffe School.

Heather Prior of LymeForward thanked all those who had helped, offered advice and funding to LymeForward for Meet and Remember.

She said that future sessions would include helpful talks, advice, activities and games to help those suffering memory loss, and she hoped this could be the first step to Lyme Regis becoming a dementia-friendly town.
