Forget-me-not Teas (Shifnal)

Forget me not

Forget-me-not teas are held at St Andrew’s Church in Shifnal on the third Thursday of each month, from 2pm until around 3.30pm. (In December 2023 it is held on the first Thursday instead.)

There’s no charge made for joining in with the Forget-me-not Teas: just go along for a cuppa and cake.

Forget-me-not is for people living with dementia and their carers to enjoy together. The Church wants to stay in step with people affected by dementia and these regular get-togethers give an opportunity to share a lovely afternoon together. There’s a warm welcome for everyone, irrespective of beliefs.

For more information, please ask Tracey Williams or visit their website.
