Shrewsbury Flower Show: 12th & 13th August

As in previous years, Sight Loss Shropshire are happy to collate requests and apply to the Horticultural Society for complimentary tickets.  

Please let me know if you would like to attend the Flower Show before 20th June 2016 

The ticket gives free entry on either day to a visually impaired person; carers will be admitted free of charge with supporting documentation (i.e. registration card), in line with the Horticultural Society’s accessibility policy.  If the tickets are over-subscribed, preference will be given to people who did not have a ticket last year.

Touch 2 See Books

A new Touch 2 See Book Club is being set up at the Library at the Lantern Shrewsbury. The Book club uses resource packs created by award winning charity Living Paintings. They make special versions of pictures with raised surfaces (called thermoforms) that come to life when fingers feel them. A sound recording directs the fingers over the raised image, describing the features of the picture & telling the stories of the image.

The first Touch 2 See Book Club will be on Monday 6th June 10.30 am – 12 noon at The Lantern, Meadow Farm Drive, Shrewsbury SY1 4NG
