Our next TWO Dementia Friendly Films Showing at
The Parkway Cinema, Beverley are “Stan & Ollie” – (March 28th, 2019) followed by “Mary Poppins Returns” – (May 23rd, 2019)

Date: Thursday 28th March, 2019 and will commence at 11.30.
Join us for tea, coffee and biscuits from 10.30 onwards.
The film this time will be “Stan & Ollie”. Laurel and Hardy — the world’s greatest comedy team — face an uncertain future as their golden era of Hollywood films remain long behind them. Diminished by age, the duo set out to reconnect with their adoring fans by touring variety halls in Britain in 1953. The shows become an instant hit, but Stan and Ollie can’t quite shake the past as long-buried tension and Hardy’s failing health start to threaten their precious partnership.

Date: Thursday 23rd May, 2019 and will commence at 11.30.
Join us for tea, coffee and biscuits from 10.30 onwards.
The film this time will be “Mary Poppins Returns”. 
Now an adult with three children, bank teller Michael Banks learns that his house will be repossessed in five days unless he can pay back a loan. His only hope is to find a missing certificate that shows proof of valuable shares that his father left him years earlier. Just as all seems lost, Michael and his sister receive the surprise of a lifetime when Mary Poppins — the beloved nanny from their childhood — arrives to save the day and take the Banks family on a magical, fun-filled adventure.

 

New Dementia Friendly Garden opened
Situated near Ward 8 it has a Wizard of Oz theme and has been developed with the assistance of many people to give sensory prompts to people who might visit. Enhanced by the presence of an Amy moth, purchased and donated by John Hillaby, it is a striking example of how a largely unused space can be enhanced and given purpose. If you would like us to help you develop a garden then use our contact page to get in touch!
