Blaby District Council launches Dementia Action Alliance

Dimentia {graphic)Blaby District Council is launching the Dementia Action Alliance (DAA) at the Council’s offices on Tuesday 19 May 2015, between 1pm-3pm.

The DAA is made up of a group of organisations who have joined together with the aim of making Blaby District a better place to live for people with dementia and their carers.

Blaby District Council is celebrating the launch by inviting people along to find out how making just a few simple changes in a business or organisation can make a big difference to someone with dementia.

At the event there will be advice about dementia support services and information for Blaby residents, businesses and community groups on how they can improve the quality of life for people living with dementia and their carers. Activities will also include Singing for the Brain, Books on Prescription and a Laughter Workshop.

There will also be a chance to take part in a Dementia Friends Information Session. Blaby District has an increasing ageing population and it is expected that the number of people living with dementia locally is expected to almost double by 2030.

Gill Collins, East Midlands Dementia Action Alliance Coordinator, said:

“This event will help to showcase the advice and information available for residents regarding dementia.

“Dementia can severely affect the lives of people living with the illness, and those caring for people with it. We hope to raise the public’s awareness on what they can do to help anyone directly affected by dementia. What they can offer will be invaluable.”

For more information about the launch and to confirm your attendance, please contact the Health and Leisure Team at Blaby District Council on 0116 272 7703 or e-mail leisure@blaby.gov.uk

Search to find those responsible for senseless damage at Watermead Country Park

Damage at Watermead Park (photo)Memorial trees and benches were amongst the items damaged at Watermead Country Park at the weekend.

It’s believed that the suspects have entered the park at the Wanlip Road, Syston entrance and made their way to John Merrick Lake where they caused significant amounts of damage to property.

Enquiries are ongoing into the incident which is believed to have taken place between the evening of Saturday 11 April and morning of Sunday 12 April.

Disabled benches, memorial trees and bins were damaged during the incident.

PC 2995 Ian Mundy is investigating the incident:

“The people who have committed these thoughtless acts of vandalism have no regard for the affect their actions would have on the people whose memories of their loved ones have been violated.

“We need to catch the people responsible and would urge anyone who has any information about the incident or the perpetrators to get in touch.”

Anyone with information in relation to any appeals featured on this site is asked to contact the relevant officer on 101, follow the instructions to leave a message and when prompted, key in the officer’s identification number.

Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

No personal details will be taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.

Calls to 101 cost 15p for the entire call from both mobile ‘phones and land lines. Please note some mobile phone service providers may charge for calls to Crimestoppers.
