Swim to support families with dementia

We proudly support one of our wardens who swam the lake on the weekend to raise money and awareness for families coping with dementia. Elaine told us she would call off the swim if it was too windy. But although the wind was strong so was she: with husband Ed, also one of our wardens, […]
