Tamworth Dementia Action Alliance
Local alliance information
The Tamworth Dementia Action Alliance is made up of organisations that operate across the town and are working together to make Tamworth a Dementia Friendly Community, and they meet on a bi monthly basis.
Tamworth received recognition as 'Working to become a Dementia Friendly Community' in April 2017!
We are an active alliance & it's quite difficult to list all of our activities on one page.
From January 2018 we will be detailing our events, by month, in the events section of this website.
Each page can be accessed by clicking on the appropriate "month" link below:
Poppy Project to commemorate WW1
To commemorate the centenary of the Great War, Staffordshire Libraries would like to invite you to take part in a county wide library poppy making project that will form part of a public display in Staffordshire Place.
Each poppy will be handmade, mixed media, and designed to collect memories and thoughts about the soldiers we lost during WWI and to remember the contribution women made in support of the war effort.
With this in mind, one of the main themes will be to make poppies to celebrate and be inspired by WW1’s inspirational women with a particular focus on figures from Staffordshire’s local history and their impact on our communities.
Each poppy will be carefully collected from all libraries across Staffordshire and placed together to form one display at Staffordshire Place, next to Stafford Library from 10th November.
