Memory groups

Memory Groups run in Trowbridge, Royal Wootton Bassett and Salisbury libraries every week and are aimed at people with memory loss, dementia and their carers.
Come along and relax whilst listening to stories and poems in a small friendly shared reading group. 
The sessions are free of charge, and refreshments are provided. The groups offer an enjoyable, relaxing opportunity to meet others and stimulate positive memories.
