CLASSIC songs and activities were the order of the day as users of the Patey Day Centre bid farewell to the Alzheimer’s Society after 21 years.

The charity provided Alzheimer’s sufferers a place to meet and receive support at the Edinburgh House centre in Sundridge Close, Cosham.

The service is now being provided by health and social care organisation Care UK.

Lord Mayor of Portsmouth Cllr Frank Jonas, Paulsgrove representative Cllr Jim Patey and Portsmouth North MP Penny Mordaunt attended the day.

Margaret Levesque, whose husband Mick suffers from Alzheimer’s and uses the service, said: ‘It went very well.

‘There was music, all the old songs, and people got up singing. It is sad that was are losing the Alzheimer’s Society.’
