Important Advice on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

For the safety of all society and to protect NHS services:

  • The Government requires that everyone stays at home unless shopping for food or medicines, taking exercise (once per day) or to provide care, or to help a vulnerable person

  • Avoid unnecessary journeys

  • People should not meet friends or family members who do not live with them

  • Try to reduce handling of food when shopping and always keep 2 metres (6 feet) apart from non-family members

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

  • If you work, then only travel to work if you cannot undertake your job from home

  • Public gatherings of more than two people are banned

Dementia Friendly Hippo
15th March 2020
Dementia Friendly Hippo

Fife Council has appointed a Project Manager to promote Fife as being Dementia Friendly. The project manager is visiting schools and delivering a specialist course for children on becoming a dementia friend. The gift of a small, hand sized, purple hippo is to be given to each child who undertakes the course.

Following the recent adult Dementia Friends Course at Bennochy, we were invited to help with some of the knitting of the hippos to be gifted. The aim is to have 1000 hippos to hand out to the children of Fife. If you can help, a knitting pattern is available in the church office or at the Olive Branch Café.

This is an ongoing project. Finished hippos can be handed in at any time to Louisa Turner, Development Worker, Bennochy Church, or handed in to the church office (marked for Louisa) or the Olive Branch Café. Louisa will deliver the hippos to Ruth McCabe, Project Manager, Dementia Friendly Fife, for distribution amongst the school children of Fife. Thank you.

Free Sanitary Products are now available at Bennochy - As part of the Scottish Government's strategy to tackle Period Poverty, funding was sought to purchase sanitary products.

As Bennochy Church opens its doors to the wider community through our youth organisations, Olive Branch Community Café, Community Choir and other groups, we were successful in a bid to receive products. Free sanitary products are now available in all toilets in the building, including the gents. Please take what you need for you and your family.

If more are required, please contact Louisa Turner, Development Worker, as we have extra supplies and can request more.
