Guideposts Dementia Friendly Day Centre at St Catherine’s Court celebrated Dementia Awareness Week (#DAW2019) with a 1940’s themed tea party. The day began with a reminiscence quiz and was followed by a group discussion about “When I was a child”.

The day concluded with a delicious 1940’s themed tea party with all of the classics including beautifully homemade Victoria sponge and cucumber sandwiches – all served up on bone china with a few cups of tea from a real china teapot.

1940’s memorabilia filled the room, with WW2 helmet to Wrens Tripod Hats, from old metal irons to Kodak Brownie camera, pictures of relatives in the Land Army to spam and marmite!

The day was a great success – even the staff dressed in full 1940’s style!
