Reminiscence Forums

Our regular Reminiscence Forums provide great stimulus for our residents to discuss topics of interest to them. The Forums are informal but a pictograph record of the forum conversations are drawn up as a record for everyone to share and reflect on. Examples of these are shown below:



Tea Dance – April 2013

Our first Tea Dance was held on 18th April 2013 under the banner of “CARE2 Dance Project”.








The project is based on the  cooperation of a local Care setting, community setting and a primary school.




Ceciel Huddlestone van Oevelen, along with 3 art practitioners have secured funding from FEAST and the Community Foundation Trust, to deliver a community led dance project in 6 areas is Cornwall, following on from a successful pilot in Camborne.








The aim of the Group shall be to enhance the health and well being of people  by employing a community led approach to the delivery of arts based projects. Which will also seek to both reduce social isolation and to strengthen community cohesion by providing a frame work  that under the best circumstances offers room for everyone, is accepting and supportive of individuals, forgiving and kind, instructive and directive.

Get Connected

We have a large screen and big key pad computer and two lap tops available for all residents to use.
