Honiton Dementia Action Alliance carried out a survey of people in Honiton Living with Dementia and one of the questions asked “what is your favourite hobby of pastime?” Walking came out on top of the list for 90% of respondents.

Acting on this HDAA have been working with Leisure East Devon to set up a walking group for people living with dementia and their carers. The group that is yet to be named meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month 2pm at the Beehive and goes for a 45 minute stroll and chat followed by tea and cake in the Beehive Café.

We are planning an information leaflet for this group any suggestions of a suitable name will be gratefully received!
