Pigeon Race for Dementia Action Week 2024

For the 10th year, Cumbria Region RPRA and West Cumbria Memory Services (NHS) organised a pigeon race from Whitehaven Harbour as part of Dementia Action Week. A good turnout of service users and carers greatly enjoyed the occasion. 

The six pigeons in the race had all been given names:

  • Lowca Princess
  • Parton Supreme
  • Queen of Cockermouth
  • Duke of Moresby
  • White Emperor
  • King of Siddick

The birds were liberated at 1pm, to a round of applause. All landed home safely, and the result was:

  1. Duke of Moresby
  2. King of Siddick
  3. Parton Supreme

The awards were presented by Sheena and Jo from the Memory Team, who Les Blacklock would like to thank for all their help in making the afternoon a success.
