New Memory Cafe starting locally

We are pleased to publicize information about a Memory Cafe which is starting this month for people with Dementia and their carers. Rev Peter Tullett has been in contact with the Alzheimer’s Society and the manager of the Hobbs Boat Inn in Lympsham and on 12th February, and then on the second Monday of each month from 10:30am-12:00pm the Memory Cafe will meet. This will be an information opportunity to meet together with other people experiencing similar concerns over tea and coffee. If you know of anyone who suffers with Dementia or someone who cares for someone with Dementia, please do let them know.

Christmas Shoe Boxes

Members of St. Andrew’s Church ,Burnham on Sea and St. Mary’s Church, Berrow took 137 shoe boxes as Christmas gifts for the Seafarers  at the Portbury Mission. The boxes are filled with warm woollen items like hats and gloves, toiletries, chocolates, sweets, small games and Christmas cards. The gifts are gratefully received by the many Seafarers who pass briefly through the docks on their journeys across the seas, often away from their homes and families for months on end, while they bring to our island cargoes of food, consumer goods and so much more on which we have come to depend. They have a thankless task , often in poor conditions and are so often forgotten as they move across the high seas in all weathers. The Mission to Seafarers offer welcoming centres in ports across the world , to those of all faiths and none and offer much help to those who fall into difficulty far from home in alien lands.
