Guy Fawkes was the hot topic when Seaton Memory Café held its latest meeting on bonfire night.

Youngsters from the town’s primary school were invited along to talk about the gunpowder plotter.

Then the children helped members make effigies of the infamous man to set alight.

A health and safety officer from the Devon Fire Brigade also attended the meeting to talk about fire safety in the home and while attending fireworks displays.

The meeting ended with an act of remembrance for those who fought in the Great War of 1914 – 1918.

In preparation for the Year 6 pupils going along, café chairman Yvonne Addington ran a number of Dementia Friends workshops at the school and many youngsters have now joined the movement.

She said the aim of the day was to bring together Café members whose lives have been changed by the effect of memory loss with members of the younger generation as there was evidence that it’s important they have some insight into the effect of dementia.
