A cheque for £960 raised from last year's Coffee and Tea sales is presented to Dr. Penny Foulds of Lancaster University Defying Dementia programme.

Dr Foulds gave an update on the development of a drug treatment for Alzheimer's Disease at Lancaster University and thanked everyone at the coffee morning for their support. The proceeds from today's coffee morning will be added to the £960
to fund clinical trials at their Centre for Ageing Research.

In October, three URC members, Hilary and David Ralphs and Stella Clarke, joined the team of Millenium Green volunteers to plant 6000 wild daffodil bulbs on the Green. Escaping heavy showers, they planted 500 bulbs in a designated area. Now we wait for the results.
