In Blairgowrie we have a group which has been running for years, Kinross has a new group and we hope to develop groups in Perth City and other communities in Perth and Kinross.
Our Blairgowrie group is open to anyone in the community who has sight or hearing loss. The group is run by local volunteers who put together a programme of activities and deliver sessions once a month.
The groups have occasional guest speakers, do quizzes, chair exercise and have the outings to places of interest or to have lunch as a group.
The group meets every 3rd Thursday of the month 10.30 to 12noon, in Blairgowrie Parish Church Hall, James Street, PH10 6EZ.
If you are interested in joining, please contact us at the Hub: 01738 626969, firstname.lastname@example.org
