Digging for Dementia

Growing with people with dementia

The final countdown!

After six months of planning and preparations, Digging for Dementia finally launches tomorrow afternoon! The launch has been a long time coming, and I’m equally excited and nervous to finally get the project started. The launch party will be held at the Valley Community Gardens in Swinton (directions here), which is also the home of Digging for Dementia, and we’ll have lots of exciting things going on, with refreshments, cakes, garden games and more! We’ll also have a gazebo in case the weather decides to be uncooperative, so don’t let the weather put you off! 🙂


As if the excitement of Saturday wasn’t enough, Digging for Dementia will also have a stall at the Society for Abandoned Animals’ Summer Fair this Sunday. Come down and say hello, meet some cute animals and support a good cause!


Digging for Dementia also received a mention on a local residents’ group website this week, which was rather exciting; I really want Digging for Dementia to be a fun, educational project for the whole community, so it’s great to see local people getting on board. Hope to see you at the launch!
