Bringing back positive childhood memories was the aim of Downham Dementia Café’s visit to Discover Downham this week.

Members of the group completed a number of self-led activities, including making lavender bags and WWII rag rugs and matching up words from the Norfolk dialect with their modern day equivalents on Monday.

Learning officer Meg Barclay said: “It was lovely to have everyone who came along and great to hear so much laughter!” Groups who would like to organise a visit, should email learning@discoverdownham.org.uk. Photo: SUBMITTED.
