HALTON libraries are appealing for old recipe books, kitchen utensils and football programmes to create memory boxes to help people with dementia recall their past.

Nostalgic things from everyday life can trigger conversation and happy memories.

Items can be brought along to Widnes Library on January 23 from 2pm to 5pm or Halton Lea Library on January 31 from 10am to 1pm.

Free refreshments will be provided.
