A new 'cafe' is opening in a town centre.

Age UK Herefordshire & Worcestershire (H&W) has revealed plans to move their Wick Dementia Cafe to Pershore Civic Centre next Tuesday.

The centre in the heart of Pershore has a long-stay car park, nearby stores, and trails to Avon Meadows Wetlands.

Age UK H&W's dementia services manager, Kelly Reeves, said: "We are really pleased to announce we are moving our Wick Dementia Cafe to Pershore.

"We are hoping that this more centralised location in the heart of the town will be more accessible for people living in Worcestershire with a dementia diagnosis to attend.

"The group offers support, friendship and access to advice and signposting, along with the opportunity to have lots of fun and experience new things."

Age UK H&W hope the town centre spot will attract new visitors, increasing accessibility for the local community.

The charity says new visitors can expect to feel comfortable and welcomed, with their staff "create an accommodating and fun atmosphere for all who attend".

The cafe will host a series of activities and events on a regular basis, granting attendees the "chance to connect over a cup of tea and cake".

The charity hopes the gatherings will give aid and information to people living with moderate to mild dementia, along with their carers, friends, and family.

Additionally, the cafe can act as a sanctuary for carers to unwind, and speak with others who may be dealing with similar issues.

Ms Reeves added: “I'd like to extend a big thank you to Wychavon District Council for supporting us with the use of the venue to enable us to provide this much needed community service.

"Please do pop along to our open day to meet the team on November 21.

"We look forward to seeing you all and hope you enjoy the session with us."
