Memory Box Café

Back to Activities

The Memory Box Café in Willingham is an opportunity for those living with dementia or memory loss (and their carers) to get together, enjoy refreshments and socialise.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • socialising with memory loss can be difficult – but everyone at the Memory Box is supportive and understanding;
  • meeting other people with similar experiences tackles loneliness and isolation;
  • the Café provides emotional and social support for carers and family members.

What to expect

If you are living with memory loss (for any reason) or you are caring for someone with memory loss, the Memory Box Café is a welcoming place to have a coffee and a chat, alongside singing and musical activities. You don’t need to join in with the activities if you don’t want to; everyone is friendly and supportive and you can just to watch and listen. Your carer or family-member will need to stay with you for the whole session.

No need to book, just turn up between 10am and 12 noon on the second Saturday of the month. You can check dates/times on the Church website. 

You don’t have to live in Willingham to attend – everyone is welcome.
