Don't Drink and Drive

Every year the number of deaths through DRINK & DRIVING goes up.

Just stop for a minute and think about what it must feel like having someone knock on your door to tell you that one of your family has been killed by a person driving while being drunk behind the wheel of a vehicle.

The number of times we take calls from bereaved parents or partners of a loved one has increased and we what your help to ask others to consider what it would be like if it was you and how they would feel about that, tell them they would never ever see you or speak to you again because someone has taken you life away from them.

We take calls from the loved ones left behind because we care and it gets harder for us and the police to say why it has happened to their loved one for which they is only one answer the DRIVER was DRUNK.

The parents or partners get a life that feels very, very empty and are filled with blank days ahead feeling like there is nothing to live for and they end up just blaming themselves and thinking

 “ if only ”.

 All they will have is the Memories that their loved ones left with them from the times they had together, But that alone will never ever ease the pain of losing them.

Imagen then being asked to identify a body of a loved one you held in your arms only a few hours ago now laying on a trolley motionless.

Does that seem right to you that they should suffer a life time of grieving while the most of the time the DRUNK DRIVER gets away with a ban or a fine.

Help us to help others to avoid that horrible knock on the front door and hearing that sad message being repeated  

“Sorry but Your Loved is dead, killed by a Drunk Driver”.

 “ So stop and think ????
don’t drink and drive “

Anxiety, fear and panic ???

Most people feel anxious or scared sometimes, but if it's affecting your life there are things you can try that may help.

Support is also available if you're finding it hard to cope with anxiety, fear or panic.


Symptoms of Anxiety

Anxiety can cause many different symptoms. It might affect how you feel physically, mentally and how you behave.

It's not always easy to recognise when anxiety is the reason you're feeling or acting differently.

¨ faster, irregular or more noticeable heartbeat

¨ feeling lightheaded and dizzy

¨ headaches

¨ chest pains

¨ loss of appetite

¨ sweating

¨ breathlessness

¨ feeling hot

Symptoms of a panic attack

If you experience sudden, intense anxiety and fear, it might be the symptoms of a panic attack.

Other symptoms may include:

· a racing heartbeat

A panic attack usually lasts 5 to 30 minutes. They can be very frightening, but they're not dangerous and should not harm you.

· try not to tell yourself that you're alone; most people experience anxiety or fear at some point in their life

· try not to use alcohol, cigarettes, gambling or drugs to relieve anxiety as these can all contribute to poor mental health


Have I got Dementia ?

Getting a diagnosis

1 If you are concerned about your own memory, or you are worried about changes you have noticed with memory, communication, personality or behaviour of someone close to you, it is important to consult a GP as soon as possible, so that an accurate diagnosis is made.

2 Going to a GP for a check-up can identify potentially treatable conditions that initially look like dementia but are not. Depression, vitamin B12 deficiency, delirium, stress, thyroid problems, infections, or vascular problems can all affect a person’s alertness, memory, or brain function.

3 Why is it important to recognise and diagnose dementia in the early stages?

What are the possible signs and symptoms that may indicate a person could have dementia?

How is a diagnosis made?

What if the person won’t go for investigations and tests?

What if the GP won’t make a referral to a Memory Service or Clinic for a specialist assessment?

Planning ahead if you’ve been diagnosed


Why is it important to recognise and diagnose dementia in the early stages?

We know that seeking a diagnosis can be scary or overwhelming, and some people feel that they’d rather delay finding out. There are four main reasons you should take steps to get a diagnosis as soon as you can.

· For some people, it can be a relief to know what their condition actually is, and why their memory, behaviour, or the way they feel is changing. A diagnosis also benefits the wider family and enables them to understand what is happening and how they can help

· A diagnosis helps the person with dementia and their family to get the best treatment, support and plans in place as soon as possible. This includes looking at finances, legal issues and making decisions for the present and the future

· A timely diagnosis can help the person stay well for longer by increasing their awareness of the condition and how they and their family can make adjustments to improve their quality of life

Although there is no cure for dementia at present, medication and other interventions can be used to help manage and lessen the symptoms

What are the possible signs and symptoms that may indicate a person could have dementia?

A change in:

· short term memory

· thought processes

· concentration level

· communication, comprehension and word finding

· motivation level

· ability to perform everyday tasks

· personality, mood, behaviour or social functioning

All of these signs and symptoms may be due to potentially treatable causes, so it should never be assumed that one or more of these signs and symptoms is definitely an indication of dementia.

How is a diagnosis made?

Firstly, before the GP refers the person for a specialist assessment of dementia, they should assess whether the person has a treatable underlying condition, such as: depression, vitamin B12 deficiency, anxiety, sensory impairment or infections. The GP should conduct an examination, organise some blood tests and ask questions to reveal physical or psychological conditions which could be the reason for the signs and symptoms experienced.

In addition, the GP should also ask when the symptoms started, and how these affect everyday living and whether these problems started suddenly or more gradually. It may be helpful to have a family member, or a person who knows the person well, present at this stage so they can say what changes they have noticed and how this affects the person and the people around them.

The GP should also briefly test the person’s memory and cognitive abilities, asking the person to:

· state what day, date and year it is

· name some common items, from pictures, or as answers to questions

· remember and repeat items to test concentration and short term memory

· complete a drawing

If all physical or mental health conditions have been ruled out as possible causes of the changes in memory, behaviour and personality, the GP may then refer the person for further investigation. This could be at a memory service (a place for specialist assessment and diagnosis of dementia), at a clinic or with a specialist.

The memory service, clinic or specialist should take a detailed medical and family history from the person with symptoms of dementia. It is helpful if a family member, or someone who knows the person well, goes to this appointment, and speaks with the person conducting the assessment to help with this process, and/or writes a short letter outlining what the issues are and how it affects the person being assessed.

Next, the memory service, clinic or specialist should assess the person’s cognitive abilities by asking specific questions, sometimes called a ‘mental state examination’ or ‘cognitive testing’. These usually include tests of attention, memory, verbal fluency and language, as well as testing their visuospatial abilities, by asking the person to copy diagrams or draw a clock. In addition, they will ask questions about the person’s abilities with everyday tasks such as shopping, housework, driving, and self-care, such as washing and dressing.

Lastly, the memory service, clinic or specialist should request an MRI or CT scan to examine the brain for any abnormalities.

2022 First Winners

Hearts of Gold Award recognition for Wisbech Girls Venture Corps


Girls Venture Corps Cadets

A girls organisation which does a lot of work in the community has been recognised with a special award.

Wisbech Girls Venture Corps Cadets has been presented with a UK Hearts of Gold Award by the locally-based Linking Hands Charity.

The awards, which were started during the pandemic, recognise groups and individuals for the work they do in the community.

Wisbech Girls Venture Corps Cadets has been awarded a Linking Hands UK Hearts of Gold Award. 

Steven Schooling, from Wisbech St Mary, who runs the charity with his wife Linda, explained the awards are for anyone who has helped others.

But this year there is the added twist of Steven and Linda visiting local groups to talk about mental health and well-being on top of presenting the awards.

Steven explained Linking Hands is a self-supported charity which offers a range of free services including bereavement counselling, alcohol and drug rehab, as well as cancer support.

He said: "There is so much negativity going on in the world, it's nice to do something to highlight all the good things."

The Wisbech Girls Venture Corps Cadets have been recognised for their work not only in keeping the group going through the pandemic but for the community work they do like giving girls a place to go and to join in and make new friends.

Steven said: "Linda and myself visited them on Wednesday (10) and had a great night and witnessed first hand what they do while having fun, they are fully on board in helping to get the mental health message across to people.

"They help out where ever they can doing the remembrance day parade and other events."

Barbara Oliver who helps run the group said they were delighted to receive the award.

The group is open to girls aged 10 to 18 and meets weekly on Wednesdays at the cadet centre in Sandyland from 7pm to 9pm. Anyone interested in joining is welcome to go along or to contact Barbara on 07876593973.

Fundraiser by Sian Jones : Official Fund Raising Page for Rob Burrow Fund (
