On Tuesday 9th October a small group took part in Richard’s second Northern Ireland meeting. This time there was a more multimedia feel to the meeting, with a selection of online videos and photographs of events in the Province. An interesting discussion took place of people’s experiences and understanding of the problems faced by those serving in the Army, from initially sleeping on the streets in a sleeping bag, before being accommodated on a ship on the River Foyle.

As many of you will be aware, Mark recently took part in a Sportive on the Isle of Man TT Course for the 4th time. For the first time there was official timing by the Manx TT Organisers.

Mark has applied for a Guinness World Record and we will still be awaiting the results. The photos show Mark at the Start on his hand cycle, and at the end of the course with his medal. He also came 6th out of 20 participants in the One Chance Great Ouse challenge, part of the course was along the new unopened stretch of the A14 between Cambridge & Huntingdon.

Mark & Karl taking part in a 50 mile long event at Swanton Morley in October too.

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.
