    We are a small friendly group of people under the age of 65 who are living with dementia.

    We support each other; enjoy doing activities and visiting areas around Mendip with our partners, friends and/or family.

    The group discuss ideas and suggestions for various activities and meet on a monthly basis


    This is a self-support group and therefore Alzheimer’s Society will not take any formal responsibility.

    A member of staff will assist with arrangements for bookings but may not be in attendance at every event.
