Yate Town Council’s Memory Café Turns One!

Armadillo Youth Venue & Cafe

In April 2023, Yate Town Council launched a new monthly Memory Café at the Pop Inn Café in Yate Shopping Centre, for people with memory loss conditions such as dementia, and their carers.

After opening, popularity for this free service grew rapidly, hundreds of attendees benefited from free activities and socialising, so in January 2024, the Town Council added a second Memory Café session to the monthly schedule.

The Memory Café is available on the first and third Friday of every month from 1-3pm. No diagnosis or referral is required to attend this free service that offers activities, refreshments, and a listening ear from our wonderful team of volunteers.

To mark one year since the opening of Memory Café, Yate Town Council is holding a ‘Big Dementia Lunch’ birthday celebration, at the Armadillo Youth & Community Café, between 1.30pm-3pm, on Friday 19th April.

This free celebration will bring together all those involved in the success of the Memory Café and our customers, to show how communities can come together to improve the lives of people with memory loss, and the carers and loved ones around them.

Councillor Wendy Tomasin, Chair of Yate Ageing Better Health and Wellbeing Committee said:
“Opening the Pop Inn Café to customers with memory loss and their carers has become a great success in a short time; showing the need for free, accessible and inclusive services, to improve our resident’s health and wellbeing.
Yate Town Council, our partners and volunteers are passionate about Ageing Better in Yate and a successful first year of Memory Café was not possible without support from our community, volunteers, donors and funders – to you we say a BIG thank you, for helping us to provide this great source of help, in the heart of our Town”.

The Town Council invites representatives from local Memory Cafes, volunteers, supporters, and the general public to the one-year birthday celebration, to enjoy some birthday cake and a brew!
