Nature and wildlife activities for anyone living with dementia or experiencing memory loss
Wild Memories is a nature and wildlife group for anyone living with dementia. It’s all about enjoying the outdoors, getting active and having fun in a relaxed social setting.
- Mondays 14.00-16.00 at the Walled Garden at Mells.
- Tuesdays 11.00-13.00pm, Wednesdays 14.00-16.00pm in Frome (usually at our dementia friendly allotment plot at Welshmill but call ahead as we sometimes go elsewhere)
*Our sessions are running every week. We have spaces available, give us a call to sign up or for any queries. All sessions are free to attend*
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Phone: 07949 572849
We do all sorts of things. From digging ponds, building wildlife homes and gardening, to creating art, writing poems and sharing stories.
Our activities are guided by peoples’ preferences and abilities as well as the weather. The group is welcoming and relaxed and we always finish off with tea and biscuits! 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 80 people attending. We’ve created two wildlife ponds and installed bat boxes along Frome river corridor (both in collaboration with Frome Town Council).
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, and Anna Jones.
