The 121 Room has completed following the extra efforts during maintenance week, thanks again to all those involved. The carpet tiles have been laid, final touches have been completed. There is now a small kitchen area and two arm chairs and a table for meetings to take place.

We are delighted to have welcomed the Dementia Friends to run a short course on what dementia is and how it affects people. The knowledge was valuable and it was brilliant opportunity to gain awareness. A few key points we learnt;

Living with Dementia
1. Agree, never argue.
2. Divert, never reason.
3. Distract, never shame.
4. Reassure, never lecture.
5. Reminisce, never say “remember”
6. Repeat, never say “I told you”.
7. Do what they can do, never say “you can’t”.
8. Ask, never demand.
9. Encourage, never condescend.
10. Reinforce, never force.

The 23rd Anglia in Bloom awards saw King's Lynn winning the Gold Award in the city category, closely followed by Norwich and Bury St Edmunds. Although our own Garden of Reflection did not win an individual prize, it is nice to think that our little corner garden helped the overall result for our town. It is certainly appreciated by the public as they walk along Sough Clough Lane as the team often hears regular comments, or see the public stopping to view.

Thanks again to all that have given their time to help maintain over the summer, and to those preparing the garden for the colder months.

It has been Heritage week in King's Lynn and the town has been thriving with locals and tourists alike. Historical buildings and the infomus Air Raid shelters were reopened as knowledge was shared with the public. T

here was again a huge amount of interest to go inside the underground complex with ques stretching across the Tuesday Market place, back down the high street level with Nandos at times!
The public donations totaling just above £1360 to the charity.

Anne and Kelvin have been busy making Ploughman's Pickle in the kitchen. Both are very keen home bakers and been cooking since childhood, Kelivin was taught to cook by his Aunt from the Age of five and is keen to further his cookery skills by learning new recipes.

Annes Jams are continuously creating new jams, chutneys and even pickles with the beneficiaries to aid in our Project Mess and fundraising for the charity.
The newest pickle will be available at The Bridge soon, however each jar takes a month to mature before sales. Judging by the smell in our kitchen it would go fantastically with a cheese sandwich or salad.

**Jars sold seperatly at £2 each in The Bridge Centre.
