What we do in St Austell
Rotarians have given their support to helping to run a monthly Club at Cuddra Hall in St. Austell through the James Parkinson Centre Cornwall for many years now. There have been recent changes within the Parkinsons organisation which has meant that the format and venue will change.
We are pleased to announce that we will be continuing to support Parkinsons through Parkinsons UK. A new monthly Hub will take place at Bethel Chapel, St. Austell with the support of our Rotarians starting on Wednesday 14th January, 2015 at the new venue. We look forward to assisting Parkinsons UK as best we can and are delighted to have been asked to continue our support for what is a very worthwhile charity.

St Austell memory cafe is one of twenty-four in Cornwall, where people with memory loss and thier family or carers can socialise, take part in meaninful activities, and enjoy 'home made' cakes and refreshments. The St Austell memory cafe operates on the first and third Monday in the month at Cuddra Hall, Holmbush from 2.00pm to 4.00pm, all welcome!
Memory cafe's can help refresh and reweave the relationship between people with memory loss and thier carers and also build mutual support. Knowing that others really understand makes a difference, and this can grow into a support network that exists outside the cafe.
