Fringe supports dementia training
An informative, open-to-all Dementia Friends training session took place recently at the Fire Station Community Room, organised by Buxton Festival Fringe. Keen to make its summer arts event more inclusive, the Fringe arranged for dementia awareness campaigner Keith Horncastle to offer practical ideas and training at the session which was attended by representatives from The Green Man Gallery, Buxton Art Trail and Buxton Film as well members of the Fringe committee. The Fringe hopes to repeat the training later in the year.
Fringe40 runs from July 3-24. See www.buxtonfringe.org.uk for details of the bumper programme.
