MP helps to make music at Wymondham singing café

A MP received an update on a town’s dementia friendly status when he visited a singing café

Mid Norfolk MP George Freeman attended Wymondham Dementia Support Group’s café today, which supports around 30 people with dementia and their carers. The group has been running for the last four years and the singing café delivers music therapy to help improve the health and wellbeing of its members.

The Wymondham Pabulum Café is held at the Fairland Church Centre every Friday apart from the third Friday of the month when the singing café is held.

Mr Freeman heard how the support group was helping to make Wymondham more dementia friendly in partnership with Age UK Norfolk, Wymondham Town Council and local businesses.
