The Kubiak Dementia Foundation held an interactive dementia-friendly day in the gardens of the Penny Brohn centre, in Pill.

More than 60 people, including families, carers and those living with dementia attended the second event held at the Chapel Lane Centre, which featured a myriad of activities including nature walks, arts and crafts, healthy eating demonstrations and 'flexercise' classes.

Organiser Victoria Kubiak said: "It's often hard for carers to stay relaxed when outside of the home.

"The day was a way for carers to be able to relax and take part in activities they wouldn't normally be able to without having to worry.

"I would like to thank all the wonderful volunteers who helped on the day."

The next event will return to the Penny Brohn centre on June 6.
