On Tuesday 28 August, MP Rishi visited the Memory Cafe. The theme was school days. Participants were invited to bring any old school photos, maybe even an old essay or artwork or a report card. The meeting also welcomed Niamh, who has just been appointed to the position of Intergenerational Worker within the Circuit. Niamh is taking part in a special one year project run by the Methodist Church nationally to encourage young people to take an active leadership role in the church. Niamh's role is to bring the generations together in a constructive way so that we can become more comfortable with those of a different generation and grow to help and support each other more. Niamh will be joining us at our monthly meetings and I'm sure you will all give her a warm welcome.

For your diaries, please note that our next meeting on Tuesday 25th September will be in the Town Hall, as there is a service in church that day.The theme will be "Harvest" — fruit and vegetables welcome! On Tuesday 30th October we will be back in church and if anyone would like to suggest a theme, please feel free.

Stokesley Remembers
Stokesley Bear: Fri 23 Nov 2:32pm

The memory is a funny thing, I've found. If I don't make a note of something I need to do, I find that I forget to do it. On the other hand, I remember things that I don't need to do anything about. Yet again, I when I do remember things, I sometimes remember them incorrectly.On the weekend of 10-11 November, it was difficult to forget that, as a country, we marked a hundred year...
