A café designed to help people with dementia has been set up by school pupils.

Sixth form students from Princes Risborough School, backed by the town’s Rotary Club, will run the Forget-me-not café monthly at the Princes Centre.

At the opening people were served refreshments and chatted with the pupils, who joined in with water colour painting, dominoes and jigsaw puzzles, while a Rotarian played the piano.

The school’s interact club is trying to raise money for a Smart TV for the café which will allow a library of yester-year experiences and entertainment to be downloaded and shown to stimulate the long term memories of those with dementia.
