A Day to Remember at the Bideford Water Festival

In the heart of North Devon, where the community is knit tightly around warmth and shared stories, Home Instead North Devon stands as a beacon of care, support, and unforgettable memories. We’re more than just a care provider; we’re family, friends, and most importantly, we’re your local companions in creating a nurturing environment for our loved ones experiencing memory loss. 

This year, we’re thrilled to announce that we’ll be bringing our cherished Memory Cafés to the lively and spirited Bideford Water Festival. It’s an opportunity not just to celebrate our rich local culture and the beauty of North Devon’s waterside but also to weave our services and care into the fabric of our community events.

Our Memory Cafés: Where Every Memory Matters

At Home Instead North Devon, our Memory Cafés in Barnstaple, South Molton, and Bideford have become a cornerstone for individuals with dementia and their families. These welcoming spaces offer a chance to socialise, engage in enjoyable activities, and access invaluable support, all within a safe and understanding environment. Recently, our dedication to providing quality care and support has been recognised with the prestigious Devon Memory Café Consortium Quality Mark, a testament to our commitment to excellence in memory care.

A Voyage to Remember: The Bideford Water Festival

Set against the picturesque backdrop of the River Torridge, this year’s Bideford Water Festival is a highlight of our local calendar, embodying the essence of North Devon’s maritime heritage and community ethos. This year, the festival promises an unforgettable journey back in time with its thrilling theme of Vikings, coinciding with Father’s Day on Sunday, 16th June.

The festival, organised with the meticulous care of The Bideford Rotary Club, is a kaleidoscope of activities that captures the imagination and spirit of all ages. Highlights include the awe-inspiring Cardboard Boat Regatta, where creativity meets courage as teams compete in cardboard vessels, embodying the Viking spirit with gig racing and a paddleboard challenge.

But the excitement doesn’t end there. The quayside will come alive with the sounds of Morris dancing, sea shanty singing, and live music, creating a festive atmosphere that’s as enriching as it is entertaining. With games, stalls, and an array of food and drink options, the festival is a feast for the senses and a celebration of our community’s heart and soul.
