ON Sunday, December 3 Cllr Joanne Harding and Claire Foster from The Steam House Urmston are hosting a community 'Memory Elf Walk'.

The event takes place at Davyhulme Park from 11am to 1pm.

It is a family themed event with a treasure hunt for the children. Hot chocolate and mince pies will be served after the walk which is a gentle stroll through the park. There is a Facebook Page where people can register or simply turn up on the day.

All proceeds will go to Trafford Alzheimer’s Society who will be supporting the event with an information stall.

Cllr Harding said: “Both Claire and I have been impacted upon by this cruel disease.

"Claire lost her mum and me my gran.

"It’s tragic to see people you love deteriorate and lose the ability to recognise family and friends. However we do know that people can live long and fulfilling lives with the right care and support.

"That’s why we want to support local services and every penny helps. Please come and join us and the only condition is you have to wear something festive.”
