Maidstone: We took a number of people living with dementia shopping in the shopping mall, we gave them money and a list and filmed them throughout. The group then had lunch in the local café and fed back to the shopping centre management about the activity and what they found good and not so good.  We also hijacked the local older persons forum in May and turned it into a dementia focused session

West Malling: We followed a couple of families around the village to look at the issues they may face. Maidstone is a new build area shopping centre and west malling is an old village with listed buildings, we were able to look at the issues and compare areas and feedback to local shops
