In a new initiative, stemming from the success of Prof. Louise Jacques' talk at the recent RMC Dinner Club we have decided to stage occasional talks on Wednesday evenings in the Peter Hall in Budleigh Salterton at 7pm. These will reflect common concerns held by many people. We have three planned so far:
2nd October – Dementia. Recognising it, living with it, how to best avoid it, chances of having it etc. – Presented by Prof. Louise Jacques.
23rd October – Mental health. Keeping a healthy mind. Presented by Rev. Karen Young who is also a mental health nurse.
11th December – End of life and questions of death. A presentation we hope will be given by Rev. Martin Jacques with David Boorer from Palmers funeral care, offering spiritual and practical information.
