THE popular Sid Valley Memory Caf� went twice-monthly this week.

After taking place at Twyford House on Wednesday, the service, launched by Rotarians Easing Problems of Dementia (REPoD), will return to the venue on October 27.

It will now take place on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month.
