BBSI General Meetings

Meet other visually impaired people, limber up, have a chat, cup of tea, listen to an informative talk, and enjoy social activities.

The meetings usually begin with a session of 'Joyful Movement' where the aim is to perform some gentle exercises to music where each movement is fully audio described. For those who would prefer not to take part, a member of Lapis, a qualified psychotherapist will lead a discussion. This is followed by Tea and Biscuits, the afternoon's entertainment and a Raffle. You are very welcome to attend any of our meetings


First Tuesday of the month 1.30-3.30pm. Note there is no meeting in August, and in January, the meeting is on the second Tuesday of the month.
