Art   Games poster - Making Memories with Dementia at The Makery

"Making Memories"

"Making Memories" is a new weekly session at The Makery designed specifically for individuals with dementia and their families/carers.


These sessions provide a safe and inclusive environment where participants can engage in casual arts and crafts, as well as enjoy fun games created by our dedicated volunteers. Our goal is to nurture memories through arts and play, and provide a positive, supportive experience for those living with dementia.


The sessions are held every Wednesday from 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm at The Makery, with additional opportunities to join us anytime between 9:30 am and 4:00 pm for company, refreshments, and a friendly chat. The Makery is fully accessible and offers hot and cold refreshments for purchase throughout the day.  


Volunteers are fully trained to offer empathetic support and signposting for those with cognitive illnesses or mental impairments, ensuring a welcoming and supportive environment.

Sessions are held at The Makery, Abbeygate Shopping Centre, Nuneaton, CV11 4EL.

Arbury Patient Participation Group

We're people like you in the PPG - that's Patient Participation Group

We meet four evenings a year at the Arbury Medical Centre and hear first-hand how the practice is changing and growing to meet the needs of our community, and changes in medicine and the NHS.

We have a chance to feedback on how those changes affect our community, how that could be fine-tuned, even.

We don't hear individual concerns, but can steer you in the right direction.

So if you'd like to hear how the practice works ahead of the crowds, ahead of needing the help and support, why not join the PPG.

Our group needs to reflect the patient population, so all genders, social & cultural backgrounds, ethnicities and age groups (18+) are welcome!

Come along and represent your patient 'group'; help us ensure your voice heard.

Our next meetings:

  • TBC

To find out more - or let us know you're coming, please contact Julia Wallis, PPG Secretary on 07801 414 335 /
