To celebrate National Boccia Day on 27/09/21, the Dementia Actif Gwynedd team organised a ‘Boccia is Back’ Competition. Unable to bring teams together to compete because of COVID restrictions, they created a target competition where players took part at their venue or care home and sent in their scores. 8 teams represented Gwynedd Council residential homes, with a total of 27 players taking part and the community classes saw a total of 24 teams and 65 players joining in.
The winners of the residential homes competition were Team Garn from Plas Hafan and the Community competition was won by Pwllheli Rollers from the Dwyfor Dementia Actif group.

On the 27th September, 30 pupils from Ysgol Pont y Gof joined our Keep Agile Online Class. At the end of the session we had the privilege of listening to the pupils singing to us. Dementia Actif members were delighted to see the children taking part and hoped they would join us again. The pupils were aged between 4 and 7 years.
National Boccia Day was established in 2016 and is held annually every year on 27th September. The aim of National Boccia Day is to celebrate the sport for those who are already involved in boccia as well as to raise the awareness of the sport across the country. The theme this year is “Boccia is Back”! to celebrate the transition from the virtual world back into the physical world of Boccia after the COVID pandemic.
Dementia Actif will be running a competition with the groups throughout the week.
