Two free open garden parties for people with dementia and their families will take place in Cowfold on Sunday July 3 and Sunday August 21st.

The tea parties will be held at Trenchmore, Burnthouse Lane, Cowfold, RH13 8DG between 3pm-5pm and will include live music, delicious tea and handmade cakes.

A representative from Horsham Alzheimer’s Society will be there with information about local services.

This will be the sixth year organiser Joanne Knowles has held the event. She said: “The parties came about as my mother, Ann, has dementia and finding outings which we could all enjoy became an increasing challenge so we decided to create our own party and open up the garden for others to enjoy too.”
