Hopes of making Ferndown in Dorset a more dementia-friendly town have received a boost thanks to a community day we held.
Around 140 people visited our Fernhill home for the inaugural Ferndown & Longham Family Festival.
Proceeds went to the Ferndown Dementia Action Alliance and other local charities. Altogether, £1,400 was raised.
Among the highlights was a ‘cuddle corner’, where families with young children had the chance to pet rabbits, guinea pigs and baby goats brought in by nearby High Mead Farm. There was also live music and a range of stalls offering plants, wood carvings, bags, jewellery and other goodies.
