Reading Group Discussing Book


During the Covid-19 crisis, our social activities have been temporarily paused but please check back for updates.

Our vibrant calendar of social events brings people together – from weekly groups which meet to roll up their sleeves and get creative, one-off workshops to the chance to try a new skill, or simply a time to chat with friends over a drink, join in and be part of our community.

Mary lost her sight in 2013 and is now registered blind. Initially attending our discussion group, she has also enjoyed craft, theatre and creative writing sessions. “Meeting and talking with people who had already experienced sight loss was very comforting and seeing how they navigated getting around was encouraging, The creative writing group has been wonderful and I find it extremely cathartic to be able to sit and think about things I haven’t considered for years. It’s probably been the biggest step in the right direction.”
