School art

PUPILS at Long Melford Primary School are helping to support Dementia Awareness Week, which runs from Sunday to next Saturday.

The pupils have made paintings, incorporating the theme “remember the person” to be displayed at Sudbury Library next week. They also have an event called Memory Boxes taking place at the school, in Cordell Road, on Thursday.

The week is run by the Alzheimer’s Society, which says wants more people to be aware of the condition. Dementia affects 11,000 people in Suffolk.
