Abergele Dementia Friendly Community Meeting

We are delighted to invite you to Abergele Dementia Friendly Public meeting.

Peter of Artisans Collective CIC will be attending as chair of Prestatyn Dementia Community to help Abergele start their journey towards being recognised.

There will be two meetings on the same day. This should hopefully allow more people to attend

Thursday 9th February at 2.00pm in Abergele Library, Market Street, Abergele

Thursday 9th February at 6.00pm in Depearture Lounge, Market Street Abergele. (Upstairs)

We will have 2 guest speakers from Prestatyn and Flint Dementia Friendly Communities, who will talk about their successes and also Mr David Gozzard, who has brilliantly volunteered himself as the Chair of the Abergele Dementia Friendly Community Steering Group.

As you may know, last year we put a lot of effort in to getting the process started. We had one of the largest turn outs for public meetings for Dementia Friendly Communities.

So far in North Wales there are 5 communities with official recognition status:
1. Mold
2. Flint
3. Buckley
4. Prestatyn
5. Porthmadog

There are a number of other communities currently working towards recognition (all at different stages):
• Hope, Caegwrle and Cymau
• Wrexham Borough
• Denbigh
• Llanfairfechan
• Llanrwst
• Abergele
• Bontnewydd and surrounding area
• Seiriol Ward, Anglesey

There are two organisations that have received status in their own right, which are:
• North Wales Fire and Rescue Service
• Wrexham Football Club

With a further 3 organisations working towards recognition:
• North Wales Police
• Cartrefi Conwy
• Betsi Cadwalader

Please let me know if you plan to attend.

I look forward to seeing you there.

Kind regards
