My name is Derek Counter. I am 74 years old and I started going to the Arts and Crafts Group about 4 years ago. I did not know that it was connected with the charity Dementia Friendly Parishes around the Yealm, but I was made very welcome, although I don’t have dementia. I learned a lot and I enjoyed it. I like the atmosphere of the group, made lots of friends and enjoyed helping out with the people who have this condition.
