10th Birthday Celebration

We will be celebrating our 10th Birthday Anniversary this July.  It's been quite some journey, as we really have come such a long way and achieved so much for our members and the town of Alton. One of the highlights was being recognised with the Queens Award for Voluntary Service last year.

The Dementia Friends initiative from the Alzheimers Society kick started the launch of Alton as a dementia-friendly high street on 1st July 2014, with many shops and businesses raising awareness of how to support people living with dementia and their carers to remain independent within their own community.  The first social group started with Legions Legends at the British Legion, closely followed by the Memory Cafe at Alton Community Centre. Fast forward 10 years and we could never have dreamed that we would have relocated our service to the iconic and beautiful Alton Assembly Rooms and offer such a wide variety of activities over six days of the week.  

On July 6th during the Arts in the Park week we plan to showcase what we are all about with a stall and art display, so do come and visit us.  We will also be celebrating later in the day from 1400 - 1530,  at a special 'Art Themed Tea Party' in our regular venue, the Alton Assembly Rooms in the High Street, where you are welcome to join us.  More deatils to follow ..............Watch this space!
