PEOPLE from Calne suffering from memory problems have a place to go if they're feeling alone.

Calne Memory Club runs once a fortnight on Fridays for people who suffer from dementia, Parkinson's or any other memory condition.

Members, who can go for free, chat, eat and join in with quizzes and other activities.

Psychologist Olga Tuffery, who has a PhD in applied science, believes it's important for sufferers to get together so they do not feel alone.

She said: "We set up the club five years ago and there was nowhere around here for people with memory problems to go.

"As well as helping the sufferers it gives the carers a break. They can chat with other carers and realise they're not on their own.

"Our team of volunteers are fantastic, they help us so much."

They last met on Friday at Marden House. The deputy mayor Richard Jones was also there and mayor Robert Merrick baked cakes for the group as well.
