I have been working in partnership with Clock Cricket as a representative of Hertswise for over 5 years. Clock Cricket, and both Richard and Sean have been an integral part of our dementia hub activities in this time.
Their reliability, consistency, active communication not only make bookings, sessions and follow on effective. But it is their kindness and awareness that really sets them apart from the rest.
Our groups support local people weekly living with dementia or memory loss and their carers. We book for them to do cricket sessions at our two hour hubs.
However, when they attend our hubs, they don’t just run a cricket session. They arrive when the clients do and spend this time talking to each of them, gauging how to deliver the session and what would work best for those individuals on that day and overall offering a friendly smile and listening ear to those who attend. But not only that, they allow and become part of Hertswise, they join in and are incredibly aware to ensure that it isn't the group and cricket.. its hard to explain but we become one. Which for our clients and in their space is invaluable.
The have attended in their own time, our Dementia Awareness Training sessions and have actively included us when making decisions for new games/ equipment for groups to ensure it will benefit the clients most.
Sean and Richard are very talented at their jobs and roles, but are incredibly considerate of the people they support. They are honestly a joy to have as part of Hertswise and our groups. The sessions bring nothing but happiness, smiles and laughter to all.
