About the Sunflower Café

The Sunflower Café first opened its doors in September 2016 at the Vine Church and each Wednesday between 2.00 and 4.00 offers tea and friendly company to those with dementia and their carers.   It is a joint community project funded by the Mother’s Union and The Vine Church, Odiham.

The volunteers who run the café often have personal experience of caring for a family member and can offer practical advice or listen sympathetically.
