Efforts have been made to raise £500 to help fund Long Ashton’s first memory café this month.
A crowd-funding page has been launched to help secure funding for the café, which would help to pay for the venue’s rent, offer travel expenses to guest speakers and offer refreshments.
It will also go towards funding activities and storage containers to put games in.
The café will be held monthly at the village community centre, in Keedwell Hill, and is due to open this spring.
Villagers, Liz Anderson and Karen Barratt, felt ‘inspired’ to set up a café after discovering the those already established in North Somerset are a car, bus or taxi journey away.
It will be designed to offer a safe, relaxing and friendly space for people living with memory loss and for their carers.
