Music and Movement for the Mind meets in the village hall in Minal every Tuesday from 10.30am to 12noon.
It is for people living with dementia and a family carer to enjoy together and the group alternates each week between singing and gentle exercise sessions.
Both are led by experienced trained leaders supported by volunteers. It’s a very friendly group and everyone does as much as they feel comfortable doing, so there is no need for prior experience or expertise.
To find out more or to come along please call Alzheimer’s Support on 01380 7399055 or go towww.alzheimerswiltshire.org.uk/movement-for-the-mind
The sound of our church bells is something perhaps we take for granted. Imagine no bells for Sunday services or weddings and Christmas. But our stalwart team of bell ringers are is need of new recruits. Already a banner has been put up on the top of Church Lane as the team urgently need to increase their numbers to ensure that the bells of St John the Baptist's church continue to ring in the village.
According to a long term bell ringer, Tom Otley, "No previous experience is needed and you do not even have to be a churchgoer. However, you will be fully trained. Also, ringing is fun and a sociable experience as well as providing a much needed service to the village.
"We are a very friendly band so if you might be interested, please get in touch - without any commitment."
