The Alzheimer’s Society has recently launched a new befriending service in East Berkshire for people living with dementia.
The service aims to reduce social isolation as people with dementia are more likely to struggle with loneliness and depression. Volunteer befrienders offer companionship and social contact and are carefully matched with people depending on their personality and interests to support them to continue to do the things they enjoy and feel part of the community.
We would love to hear from anyone in Sandhurst who would be interested in volunteering or would like to find out more about the service. Please contact either Liz Barr or Sara Uren on 01628 626331 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The bands have their own bandroom in the centre of Sandhurst and as a development area, are looking to create a youth band in the near future.Both bands regularly host concerts in the Sandhurst area, as well as appearing further afield. So we look forward to welcoming you to hear the ‘Sounds of Sandhurst’.
For more information about joining the band, or in booking one of the bands for an engagement, please visit the band website -www.sandhurstband.co.uk.
Formed in 1908, Sandhurst Silver Band is made up of two individual ensembles. Sandhurst Community Brass, a non-contesting band made up of players ranging in ability, and Sandhurst Silver Band who compete nationally at the top level of brass banding.
