V-Festival – The Saturday
Saturday 20th: opened at 10-30am people still bleary eyed from night before but by lunchtime things had livened up. We had lots of people passing us many of whom came for a chat and a couple of guys had haircuts, again everyone we spoke to knew of someone with dementia, one young guy told us of his uncle who was only 42 when he was diagnosed with the disease. People were asking lots of questions and I do know we made a difference to their understanding of Dementia and dispelled a few myths, people very supportive. Fairground was in full swing, seemed to get louder as it got later, torrential rain, closed up at 7pm. Went off to see Rhianna at around 8pm, she was very very good.
