Rugby charity New Directions have purchased some pop-up reminiscence experience pods (RemPods), which promise to transport users to all sorts of environments.

The RemPods provide fun and meaningful activities for schools, parties and are particularly beneficial for people with disabilities or sufferers of dementia.

There is a wide variety of portable themed pop-up experiences available, including a beach, traditional pub, bingo hall, cinema and modern supermarket.

The RemPods and the charity’s RemPod vehicle were purchased after New Directions successfully received a grant from Warwickshire County Council.

Acting manager for New Directions’ day opportunities service, Samantha Slater, said, “The benefit of our Rempods is far reaching.

“They can provide a stimulating environment that is calming and therapeutic but also immersive so that people can be transported to a time and a place where they feel happy and involved.

“Our RemPods are for hire and can be transported and easily assembled by our professional team.”

The charity will hold on open day at their community space (unit 8, Webb Ellis Park) on Tuesday, June 21 between 11am and 2pm, to demonstrate what the pop-up experiences have to offer.

Anyone interested is welcome to attend.
