Emma Quaeck, Gwynedd's Dementia Coordinator, said:

“The purpose of the day is to invite people to come along to find out how we can help support people affected by dementia in our communities - that includes the person with a diagnosis and family members.

“Most people these days know someone who has been affected by dementia, so this is a great opportunity to find out more.

“The day offers a variety of interactive events and is free of charge.”

Councillor Dilwyn Morgan said:

"I am extremely proud of the event which is a great opportunity to raise awareness and learn more about dementia and the support available here in Gwynedd. This event will be full of fun and will put a smile on everyone's face and I certainly encourage anyone to come along"
