Digging for Dementia

Growing with people with dementia

It is with regret that I announce the cancellation of the Digging for Dementia Hallowe’en Harvest event, which was due to take place this Sunday, 27th October. This is due in part to the weather forecast for Sunday, which predicts heavy rain and strong winds all afternoon. However, the primary reason for the cancellation of the event is the lack of respondents. On the event poster, I asked attendees to contact me to inform me that they would be attending, but I have received no responses, and it seems a poor use of the money donated to Digging for Dementia in good faith to fund an event which nobody is planning to attend. With the exception of a possible Christmas event, Digging for Dementia will be taking a break over the Winter and will return in the Spring, potentially with two further sites located across Salford. Thank you for your continued support, and I hope to see more of you at next year’s sessions.

EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT: Digging for Dementia’s Hallowe’en Harvest!

Hello, lovely Digging for Dementia supporters!


Apologies for the recent silence; as those of you who follow DFD on Twitter will be aware, the past few sessions have been cancelled due to illness. Thankfully, I’m feeling better now, and I’m ready to welcome Autumn with a Digging for Dementia spectacular!


Our veggies are almost ready to harvest, and I thought it would be fun to make an event out of it to celebrate our achievements in recent months. It’s also almost Hallowe’en, which is always a great time for a party! So on October 27th at 12pm, I’ll be holding Digging for Dementia’s Hallowe’en Harvest, and you are all invited to help the group to harvest our vegetables, and enjoy gruesome games, petrifying pumpkins, spooktacular sweets, terrifyingly tasty treats, and lots more! 


The event will be held on Sunday 27th October, from 12pm-3pm, at the Valley Community Gardens in Swinton. The event is open to people with dementia, their friends, relatives and carers, and anyone else who’d like to join in the fun! Further details and a gore-geous event poster to follow. Hope to see you there!
