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 Chair Yoga or a member of the BBSI Committee will lead a topical 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
