Help Out with Dementia May Fair

click image to enlarge
A good old fashioned May Fair fun day for all the family is being planned for the village green on Sunday 18th May at 2pm.

The May Fair also hopes to have May Pole dancing, a Big Balloon Launch and a variety of stalls.

As well as having fun, the purpose is make people aware of Dementia and to understand how to help people with dementia in our community.

To make the day as successful as possible, Ruth is looking for a kind sponsor for the kids Punch & Judy (£200), help with refreshments, and for stalls of fun activities we can all enjoy.

It would be great if people could help out with things like: Bat the Rat, Sponge throwing, Face painting, Pin the Tail on the Donkey, Egg and Spoon Racing, Duck Fishing, - in fact, anything traditional and fun.

Local charities are welcome to have stalls to raise money for your own charity but any costs to families must be at a minimum.

Milford on Sea is working to become a Dementia Friendly Village. This is a Friendly Communities Initiative Commissioned by Hampshire County Council, looking to create a community where people with dementia: Can live as independently as possible, Can still be part of their community, are met with understanding and given support when they need it.

Dementia Support Groups are also being established in the village. You can become Dementia Ambassador or volunteer, just come along to one of our 45 minute awareness sessions.To join in, sponsor or find out more about anything above, please contact Ruth Bufton on: 01590 641875 - ruth.bufton@btinternet.com
