A POPULAR creative group for people with dementia will move to a new location on April 1.

At Shaun Ray’s Musicpainting sessions, participants translate the music they hear into abstract paintings.

Many of those paintings have been put on display at Chepstow Community Hospital, where the group has been based since its inception two years ago.

But from next week it will be relocated at Bulwark Senior Citizens’ Hall in Cromwell Road, Bulwark.

“Everyone in the group would like to say a big thank-you to the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board for supporting Musicpainting for so long,” Mr Ray said.

“It has been a pleasure to be at the hospital working alongside so many wonderful members of staff.

“We will miss them, but we look forward to a great future in our new home in Bulwark.”
