HONITON is to get a caf� to help men and women with memory problems.

The Pop In Caf� is expected to open at the end of May, with retired mental health nurse Heather Penwarden as its coordinator.

Organisers are calling for volunteers and financial support to get the caf� started.

The caf� will offer informal, friendly support to residents whose carers, relatives or friends are concerned about the people they deal with showing memory problems. Volunteers will need to attend a one-day course to learn more about their role at the caf�, but no specific skills or experience are required.
