Evoking memories of good times past is the idea behind a new lunch offering at a Norfolk pub, aimed at families and people with dementia.

The Crown in Fakenham is launching a new lunch club on October 9, featuring music from past decades and meals from £6.50.

Alie May-Hamman, the pub's landlady, said: “A lovely lady from a local care home suggested this idea and to offer something to families somewhere which is dementia friendly to eat.

“Something like this is so important for the people and families affected by the dementia.

"I will also be playing music from the 1940s, 50s and 60s, hoping to create a familiar and comfortable atmosphere for everyone to enjoy."

The lunch club will take place every Monday and Wednesday, with a changing menu. 

Dessert will cost an extra £1 and free tea and coffee will also be on offer.
