Wonderful support

On Sunday, May 7, 22 members of Berwick and District Friends of Dementia enjoyed an afternoon at The Maltings where they saw Berwick Operatic Society perform the musical Oliver.

What a superb show it was.

We are so lucky to have such a wealth of talent right here in our little town.

At the end of the performance, the cast sang Happy Birthday to our friend Helen, who was celebrating her 80th birthday that very day.

Young Corey Learmonth, who was playing the lead role, presented Helen with a bouquet of flowers and it was an emotional moment for both of them.
