Mind the Time is an anthology of football-related poetry edited by poet in residence at St Johnstone FC, Jim Mackintosh. In over one hundred poems, it brings together the words of fity poets to raise awareness of the work undertaken by the Football Memories Groups. Through poems about the beautiful game, the anthology explores and celebrates memories and the precious bonds between friends and family which can be lost so quickly when dementia bruises and loosens those ties. Take your seats for a line up of poets and poems showcased in the collection.
