A MEMORY garden to support people with dementia has been formally unveiled in Keighley.

The site, in Church Green, features plants aimed at invoking memories and stimulating the sense of smell.

There is also a seating area, with an Alzheimer’s Society logo installed in the paving.

And an information board gives more details about the garden.

The area will be maintained by Keighley Town Council.

A number of groups and businesses have been involved in the initiative. The official opening was carried by the Lord Mayor of Bradford, Keighley councillor Zafar Ali, and town mayor Councillor Fulzar Ahmed.

Cllr Ali said: “I was delighted to help open the garden. It will benefit both young and old, something I want to be a theme during my time as Lord Mayor.”
