Cup Cake Day – Friday, June 18th from 10.30 am – 12.30 pm at Romsey Memorial Park

The next meeting of Greenbuttercup CIC’s ‘Dementia Support Group’ will take place on Friday, June 18th from 10.30 am – 12.30 pm and meet at Romsey Memorial Park. June 17th is the Alzheimer’s Society’s ‘Cupcake Day’ so they will celebrate it a day late. They will provide the cupcakes, and you can either buy a hot drink from the cafe or bring your own. There will be the opportunity to have a walk around the Park and/or play some throwing and guessing games….or you can just eat cake !! There are benches around the Park, and tables & chairs under a shelter by the cafe. If the weather isn’t on our side, we can always take cover under the bandstand. If you want to bring your own chair or picnic We will charge the usual £3 per person entry fee and will send it to the Alzheimer’s Society.

For those of you who don’t know the area around Memorial Park, free parking is available along the side of the wall before you get to the bridge and park entrance. There is also limited disabled parking by the entrance and along the Park side of the road after the entrance. We will meet by the Park Cafe.

Picnic – Tuesday, 22nd June from 11.30 am – 1.30 pm at the Sports Field next to Romsey Rapids

As members of ROMDAG have been unable to organise DEMFEST for the second year running, they have instead arranged a series of monthly ‘themed’ picnics for people living with Dementia and their carers. The June picnic takes place on Tuesday, 22nd June from 11.30 am – 1.30 pm at the Sports Field next to Romsey Rapids. You are invited to go along with your picnic and something to sit on and enjoy a ‘musical’ couple of hours. Kim G who came to one of Greenbuttercup CIC’s sessions at the beginning of next year and runs the ‘Memory Choir’ will be dropping by to get everyone singing a few favourites.

If you are interested in going to the picnic, please contact Marianne on 07899 664209 or mpiggin@testvalley.gov.uk

Pantomime – Friday 18th June – Sunday 27th June

In these crazy times, RAODS are putting on a pantomime in June !! When it looked as though restrictions would be eased towards the end of last year, members of ROADS wrote and rehearsed a short pantomime to incorporate COVID-restrictions.

Unfortunately, they were unable to perform it, so they have decided to perform ‘Jack and the Beanstalk: a COVID Panto’ to celebrate the re-opening of the Plaza this month. There are socially distanced performances from Friday 18th June, finishing with a ‘relaxed’ performance on Sunday 27th June at 6.00 pm. For more information, go to the RAODS website – www.plazatheatre.com. This is, of course, subject to any COVID-restrictions being put in place.
