Social Groups

Weekly Groups

Our popular social groups offer local visually impaired people the chance to get together, meet new people and take part in a broad range of activities that really does offer something for everyone! There's never a dull moment, with activities including board games and quizzes, arts and crafts, listening to live music, baking and even balroom dancing! Our groups also offer day trips to local places of interest, meals out in local restaurants, pubs and cafes. We offer talks on a diverse range of topics from bee keeping to local history and even the opportunity to get up close and personal to creatures such as meercats and magnificent birds of prey!
