A Woodthorpe-based charity is to run themed activity sessions for people living with dementia. The first session, on the theme of ‘A day at the seaside’, is on Thursday 6 July from 1.30pm to 3.30pm at St James the Deacon church hall on Sherringham Drive – see poster below for details.
Dementia Yorkshire has received a grant from the Dringhouses & Woodthorpe ward committee to help support these monthly sessions. We wish them every success.
Local residents are invited to attend a drop-in session to have their say on proposals by the Wilberforce Trust to build 30 flats for its tenants on land it owns to the north of The Grove, off Tadcaster Road.
The proposals, which include a social/community hub for tenants and offices for the charity, will be on display at the Sunflower Centre at St Leonard’s Hospice on Thursday 6th July from 4.30pm to 8pm. A Wilberforce Trust leaflet (copied below) is being delivered to local homes to publicise the drop-in session.
The Wilberforce Trust is a York-based charity that provides specialist housing and support for people with visual impairments, sensory impairments and other disabilities. Its website can be viewed at www.wilberforcetrust.org.uk
In the most recent draft Local Plan, this piece of land had been provisionally allocated for residential extra care facilities in association with the Wilberforce Trust.

Join Dementia Friends Champion Claire for a Dementia Friends session.
Dementia touches the lives of millions of people across the country. Dementia Friends was launched to tackle the stigma and lack of understanding that means many people with the condition experience loneliness and social exclusion.
The session is all about learning more about dementia and the small ways you can help. From getting in touch with someone you know living with dementia to wearing your badge with pride, every action counts.
Tickets available from any Explore Library or call Dringhouses Library on (01904 552674) or email@example.com.
