Epping Forest Dementia Action Alliance is Growing in Loughton.
Loughton, Buckhurst Hill and Chigwell Rotary have played a key role in the EF DAA since its inception in May this year. They are now signed up to the National Dementia Declaration which has been created in partnership with people with dementia.
Paul Reynolds from Haslers, chartered accountants, Loughton said “All members of Epping Forest Dementia Action Alliance publish an action plan on the DAA’s web site www.dementiaaction.org.uk , appropriate to their organisation. They then set out what they will do to help improve the lives of people living with dementia.”
Pesh Kapasiawala who is a member and former president of the local Rotary said “ We are looking forward to implementing our action plan and want to encourage other organisations and businesses across the district to sign up to help create a dementia-friendly community.”
LBC Rotary run lots of activities including their Memory Café on the 2nd Friday of the month at The Loughton Club , Station Road, for both those living with varying levels of memory loss and their carers/family and partners to enjoy free refreshments, entertainment, memorabilia and a chat.
To join or find out about other events LBC Rotary run or to join as a member, please call Pesh on 07973166940 or email pesh@londonresidential.co.uk



Hi Pesh,

Once again, thank you so much for all the time you’ve given to make sure the Big Collection has run smoothly in your store at the last minute! This is a massive achievement and valued all the more because the Collection likely would not have gone ahead without your efforts. All the time you have put into this collection is so important to the work of both Diabetes UK and the British Heart Foundation. The funds that you and your team have raised will support vital research and to encourage people to take up healthier lifestyles.

Working with you has been an absolutely fantastic – I cannot thank you enough! Your stepping in to help has been inspiring and I really cannot say it enough – THANK YOU!

Best wishes,

Julia Bernhardt

We had a wonderful time taking nearly 40 children from Woodcroft Special Needs School for a day out to Paradise Wildlife Park. The work of the teachers and Head, Brian Sainsbury is amazing. It was all part of a National day out for kids under the ‘Kids Out’ charity. Thanks to our volunteers Edwin Attwood, Pam Merritt, Manisha Kapasiawala,
