Star date: 10th September 2016

HOUSE OF MEMORIES DEMENTIA AWARENESS DAY

This Sunday is National Dementia Carers' Day, and, to coincide, family and carers of people with dementia are being invited to take part in free House of Memories workshops in November at Salford Museum and Art Gallery to provide help in understanding the experience of living with dementia and being a carer.

This Sunday, 11th September, marks National Dementia Carers' Day, which recognises the contribution family and informal carers make by caring for people living with dementia at home.

Since 2012, National Museums Liverpool has been providing dementia awareness training to over 10,000 carers across the country, and last year, set up workshops for family carers to provide them with new ideas and perspectives, which it's bringing to Salford Museum and Art Gallery on Monday 14th November.

The workshops include character-based video stories to help participants understand the experience of living with dementia and being a carer, trials of the award-winning My House of Memories app, and taking part in dementia-friendly activities at the Museum to show how cultural venues can be a resource in helping to unlock memories, improve communication and understanding, and enrich the lives of those living with dementia.

"We set up our first workshops for family carers in Liverpool last year, to provide them with new ideas and perspectives on caring for their loved ones" says Carol Rogers, Executive Director of Education and Visitors at National Museums Liverpool "Person-centred care is at the heart of our workshops, and acknowledges that an individual's personal history and memory is of huge importance.

"We know that dementia is an emotional subject to talk about, particularly if it affects a person you love" she adds "When you're caring for someone on a daily basis, it can be hard to see past the every day tasks. We have received some incredible feedback from previous workshops, and we hope people will take the opportunity to join us so we can steer them in a positive direction, and help improve the lives of those they care for who are living with dementia."

National Museums Liverpool's House of Memories programme has been commissioned by the Department of Health as part of the Prime Minister's Challenge on Dementia 2020.

House of Memories Workshops
Monday 14th November 9:30am-12:30pm, and 1:30pm-4:30pm
Free places can be booked by emailing
learning@liverpoolmuseums.org.uk  or calling 0151 478 4240.

GMCA TRIES TO AVOID VEHICLE CHARGES FOR CLEAN AIR ZONES

Today, Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) is meeting to discuss options for reducing air pollution in the region. The Government has identified charge based Clean Air Zones as the benchmark, and unless the GMCA can come up with an alternative plan to reduce emissions quickly, charging polluting vehicles will be on the cards. A 'workplace parking levy' is one of the options.

DISTRAUGHT SALFORD DAUGHTER CANíT GET TO FAMILY GRAVE AT ST PAULíS CHURCH IN KERSAL

Star date: 14th August 2018

A TALE OF TWO CUSSONS, HIGH BRAMBLES AND IMPERIAL LEATHER

At the front of St Paul's Churchyard in Kersal, the first neat and tidy grave you come across is that of Alexander Cussons and famous family. However the grave of the less famous William Evans, who produced the first ever bar of Imperial Leather soap, is at the very back of the yard and totally inaccessible, literally buried beneath 6ft high weeds and brambles.

William Evans' great granddaughter, Lesley Northall, is distraught as she wants to add her mother's ashes to the site but can't get near it. This isn't just the tale of two Cussons gurus but also of a church struggling for resources.
