We do all sorts of things. From digging ponds, building wildlife homes and gardening, to creating art & seasonal crafts, writing poems and sharing stories, always finishing off with the all important tea and biscuits.
Our activities are guided by peoples’ preferences and abilities as well as the weather and the season. The sessions are free to attend and we can provide free transport. Carers and family members are more than welcome to join us.
If you are living with dementia, symptoms of memory loss, or you are caring for someone who is, then please get in touch.
Achievements so far
Since the project was launched in 2020, we have delivered over 350 activity sessions in and around Frome, with more than 100 people attending. We’ve created two wildlife ponds and installed bat boxes along Frome river corridor and planted a hedge. We’ve made countless works of nature inspired art and seasonal crafts such as willow sculptures, felt tapestries and clay gargoyles.
Wild Memories is supported by Somerset County Council. We are also extremely grateful for the support of Frome Town Council, The W.G. Edwards Charitable Foundation, the Hospital Saturday Fund, the Nineveh Trust, the Florence Cohen Charitable Trust, the Masonic Charitable Foundation, and Anna Jones.
