BRAISHFIELD Ukulele Music Society is continuing its regular sing-along sessions for people with dementia.

The sessions were inspired by the BBC programme Dementia Choir, with the society making it a regular occurrence after trialling them a year ago.

The dementia singing sessions are free of charge and are usually held at the Church Rooms on the third Monday of every month.

The sessions begin at 2.30pm and last for an hour. They are then followed by tea and biscuits, as well as the chance to chat with the players and other attendees.

Song sheets are available to all attendees and everyone is invited to join in, with songs going back to the 1960s and beyond.

The next singalongs are scheduled for April 15, May 20 and June 17.
