Fylde MP Mark Menzies has pledged his support for a G8 global dementia research strategy to help defeat the debilitating illness.

Mr Menzies, was among fellow MPs and Peers who backed a call for global action to defeat the disease through research, as the UK recently hosted the first G8 Summit on dementia in London.

Me Menzies is currently attempting to have Fylde recognised as a Dementia Friendly Community and is in the process of organising training for those who work with members of the public to recognise the signs of dementia and act accordingly.

He said: “This is a battle which will only grow in significance in the future and we cannot afford to be complacent now.”
