I'm glad to say that Portland has joined an Alliance devoted to making the island dementia friendly.
Jackson's Gallery owner, Mark Jackson, went to the meeting where it was adopted and spoke about his father, Harry, who used to go to Singing for the Brain with my mother.
"My father had it for three years before he died so I know how severe it can be"
Mark said he just wanted coming into his cafe to be a nice experience for somebody with dementia.
"We should all support the Alliance," he said.
And so we should.
