Beginning on World Alzheimer’s Day, Dementia Action Week is our annual chance to start a conversation about de-stigmatising dementia; a collection of cognitive impairment symptoms affecting about 400,000 Australians and over 46 million people worldwide.

Because it’s heavily stigmatised and looked down on in our communities, dementia is often hidden away or not spoken about, especially when those affected are most in need of support.

This Dementia Action Week, it’s time to get talking and start the process of de-stigmatising dementia.

 

How to participate

Participating in Walk With Me 2020 is easy. Just head out for a walk in your local community during Dementia Action Week (21-27 September 2020), take a picture with the purple poster included in this pack, and post it to the Moreton Bay Dementia Alliance Facebook event page (Walk With Me 2020) using the hashtags #DestigmatisingDementia and #Walk With Me2020.

Register today at mbwalkwithme.com.au and show your support for those living with dementia.

September Meeting Cancelled

Following additional COVID-19 restrictions for the greater Brisbane area (including Moreton Bay Region), History Redcliffe regrets that we must cancel our scheduled September members meeting. The health and safety of our members, visitors and guest speakers is paramount.

Our next newsletter will be out soon so we look forward to keeping in touch with our members in that way. We look forward to resuming usual activities and meetings when it is safe and prudent to do so.

Thank you for your patience and stay safe!

The Management Committee of History Redcliffe (t/a Redcliffe Historical Society Inc.) requests your presence at the Annual General Meeting to be held at WD Surveys – 15 Anzac Ave, Redcliffe on Friday 14th August 2020.

After the AGM, afternoon tea will be served. All financial members are entitled to vote for the nominated committee candidates to be appointed to the 2020/21 History Redcliffe Management Committee.

During the meeting we will be screening “A Holiday House Called Rooftrees”.

Looking forward

As the various stages of COVID-19 restrictions are relaxed and rolled back, we are looking forward to resuming our normal meetings and activities. History Redcliffe is committed to the health and safety of our members and friends. At this stage we don’t have a date for resumption of meetings but we will keep you updated with any developments.

COVID-19

The History Redcliffe management committee have decided with great regret to suspend planned events until further notice.

The health and safety of our members, friends and the the wider community must be safeguarded and, as such, the April general meeting and the Redcliffe cemetery walk will not proceed.  We are hoping to reschedule the cemetery walk after this current public health crisis has abated.

We will keep you updated regarding events planned for later in the year and hope to resume normal activity as soon as we can.
