Our theme for April is Want to try a new activity?, with two sessions to come along to. Explore new hobbies to take up and enjoy.
Session 1: Gardening
Do you experience challenges working in your existing garden? Have you considered starting your own kitchen garden? Gardening can still be an enjoyable and therapeutic experience after vision loss. Explore new ideas to help create your own sensory garden.

Session 2: Creative Expression: Art for Wellbeing
Research suggests engaging in creative activities such as music, art or theatre can have powerful and lasting effects on our health and wellbeing. Meet our guest speakers who will share their passion for the arts and discuss how you too can pursue a creative activity.
