Probus Memory Café


A Member of Cornwall Memory Café Network

Due to the current guidelines from the Government and the situation with regards to Coronavirus Covid-19, the Memory Cafe is postponed until further notice.

PROBUS MEMORY CAFÉ – Volunteers and Committee Members required .

Due to the Pandemic , the Probus Memory café had to stop having its fortnightly meetings in March 2020. However, it may now be possible to start planning for a resumption of these rewarding, get -togethers for individuals and their carers later this year.

For a variety of reasons, new Volunteers and committee members are urgently needed to lead and restart the Café meetings. Anyone wishing to take on a new worthwhile challenge and contribute ideas and enthusiasm and welcome people with memory loss back for some much missed social engagement please do contact us for more information.

There are funds and a good stock of equipment already in place.

For further information, please contact Claire on
