People living with dementia were treated to an inspiring trip to a museum in Portbury.

Members of the Nailsea Memory Café enjoyed an outing to Oakham Treasures, which features memorabilia from retail and farming from the last century.

The memory café provides support for people diagnosed with dementia and their carers at the town's tithe barn.

Karen Smith, café organiser, said: "This is a great venue, with so many collections and objects to spark reminiscing conversations.

"The visit also coincided with National Volunteers Week with volunteers coming along to provide support on the trip."

The charity is looking to recruit new volunteers to cope with the increase in demand for support services.

It is also looking for groups to run activities and entertainment in future.

Anyone interested can contact Karen on 07790 344559 or email tbarnmemories@gmail.com
