DDT is creating a dementia friendly garden in the grounds of the Braeport Community Centre which will also be open to the wider public. One purpose will be to involve the attendees at our weekly Memory Café in the planting up and occasional maintenance of the garden.

£8,000 of the estimated £12,000 cost has been raised from a number of funding sources for site clearance, building of accessible raised beds and other features including seating, a potting shed, a pergola and some play items for younger children. To complete the project, DDT is seeking donations towards the £3,500 required for professional laying of quality paving and to purchase trees, hedging plants, shrubs, perennials and seeds for displays that provide a range of stimulating scents, sounds and colours.

It is with a huge mixed bag of emotion that we announce the closure of the ToyHub.

As many of you will know it’s been a 10 year rollercoaster of fun, frivolity and generally being awesome, but all good things must come to an end.

The Toy Hub family would like to thank each and every one of you who have supported our venture.

We’d love to invite you to share your memories with as we leave Dunblane High Street and have included some of our favourite pictures in this post to help remind you of our journey.

We plan to close on Saturday 14th December and hope you can join us for our farewell party!
