Our Tea & Talk sessions at the Beggarwood Community Centre’s “Café in the Park”, Broadmere Road, Basingstoke  RG22 4AQ, are in abeyance for the time being.

Our cafes are free and are intended to provide opportunities for anyone with memory loss or dementia, together with carers and family, as well as any other elderly members of the local community who are just looking for company, to meet up, reminisce, share experiences or just get out of the house.

These are informal and unstructured sessions with refreshments and access to information. No need to book. No need to stay for the whole session. Everyone’s welcome, why not just pop in and say hello ?

For more information please feel free to contact Sally on our office phone number, 01256 840 660.
