Carers Week event at Daniel Owen Square

Published: 28/05/2015

NEWCIS (North East Wales Carers Information Service) is holding an awareness raising event at the Daniel Owen Square on Wednesday 10 June, as part of Carers Week 2015. The event will be held between 10am to 4pm, with games, activities and music taking place throughout the day. There will be three main stalls: A lovely seaside reminiscence pod where people will have the chance to buy an ice cream and enjoy sand in their toes whilst relaxing, listening to the sea and having the opportunity to be on their own postcard. A vintage pub reminiscence pod for people to buy soft drinks, juices and snacks while socialising and enjoying some vintage pub songs. There will also be an information stand on the main street in Mold, promoting NEWCIS and its services and also explaining Carers Week. Cllr Christine Jones, Cabinet Member for Social Services, and Carers Champion at Flintshire County Council, said: “Flintshire County Council recognises the important contribution made by hundreds of informal carers and family members throughout Flintshire to enable people to remain living at home and to be a part of their local communities. I would encourage everyone to show their support for Carers Week in Wales by joining in with these fun activities organised by NEWCIS, as well as taking the opportunity to learn more about the work that NEWCIS does here in Flintshire. Flintshire County Council has a number of Reminiscence pods for people living with dementia to enjoy; they are available to loan through the Flintshire Library Service. Those wishing to find out more about the scheme should contact NEWCIS or the Flintshire Library Service directly on 01352 704400.
