This year’s National Time to Talk Day was held on Thursday 7th February in the coffee shop at Alsager's Community Church and was all about bringing together the right ingredients to have a conversation about mental health. We decided that would be an informal cup of tea or coffee, with biscuits and cake and a room of people all challenging the mental health stigma... We got everyone talking!

It was All About Health, Wellbeing & Fitness on 2nd February, when Alsager Partnership delivered a spectacular event that focussed on health awareness and prevention. With over 50 health, wellbeing and fitness organisations represented, there really was something for everyone that included advice on diet, nutrition and weight-loss amongst many other subjects.

A HUGE THANK YOU to Alsager's Pikemere Townswomen's Guild, who on 25th January handed a cheque for £200 over to Alsager Partnership to support our Dementia Community Fund. We were so happy to welcome the ladies to the Memory Café that morning, where they were able to see first hand how their fundraising would be put to good use. Pictured here from left to right are Kath Brompton, Kath Reader, Maureen Rees, John Poulson and Maureen Ruscoe.
We are so pleased to announce that in January this year, Alsager Partnership attended Alsager High School to deliver the final Dementia Friend Session to a cohort of six form students. This group were unable to attend a session last year due to exams, but we were keen for them not to miss out and so we are now proud to say that every single child that attends an Alsager primary school or the high school is an Alzheimer's Society Dementia Friend.
On Friday 21st December, visitors to Alsager's Memory Café turned up to enjoy the most splendid Christmas Party.
In addition to all of the usual fun, cake, tea, coffee and biscuits our visitors were treated to surprise gifts, mince pies and Christmas cake, alongside live entertainment performed by local singer Virginia Meir accompanied by a keyboard player.
