THE Watson Cubs were recently visited by Burley-in-Wharfedale Dementia Friends Champions who led a lively and interactive session which helped the cubs understand dementia.

A spokesman for Burley-in-Wharfedale Dementia Friends said: "The cubs showed a lot of sensitivity and insight during the session and wrote thoughtful pieces afterwards about the sort of actions they would carry out as dementia friends. It was wonderful to see the enthusiasm these young boys had in wanting to help people in the community. Burley in Wharfedale Dementia Friends are very keen to help raise awareness about dementia across all sectors of the village. They can be contacted via for anyone interested in learning more."
