West Berkshire Alzheimer's Society

The McBaby and I have our walking boots at the ready for Saturday's Memory Walk at Thatcham Nature Discovery Centre on 22nd September from 2-3pm.

We were supposed to register online and I never got round to it, partly deliberately because I did so last year and then got lots of expensive marketing material through the post. Probably costing more than the amount I raised. I don't need this stuff. I want every penny to go towards practical help for people with dementia.

So I fired this little moan off to the local office in an email and they apologised and promised to pass my complaint up the chain.

Lo and behold, I've now been emailed a sponsorship form so that I don't have to register! The moral of the story: Moaning works!

So now that's out of my system, here are all the details so you can come and join us!

Can you spare an hour to raise some funds and awareness of dementia whilst having fun at the Thatcham Discovery Centre? You can do a short stroll round the lake or a longer march across the reedbeds. It's a really lovely local venue, ideal for the whole family for an afternoon out - baby buggies and manual wheelchair fully accessible. There's a super café selling delicious snacks & home-made yummy cakes, lots of information exhibits and hands-on activities for the kids.

Description of walk:You can do a short stroll round the lake or a longer 2-mile march across the reedbeds. It's a really lovely local venue, ideal for the whole family for an afternoon out. This route is fully accessible for baby buggies and wheelchairs.

There are play areas for toddlers to young teens, a field to kick a ball around, plenty of parking and picnic tables overlooking the lakes. You can even feed the ducks & swans. We hope the Thatcham Major will open the event for us. Come along and join our family-friendly Memory Walk.
