ACTIVITY GROUPS

As with the Social Groups, the Association actively encourages and supports a variety of vocational interest groups such as arts and crafts, rifle shooting, sailing, bowls and walking.

In the large conurbation of Lowestoft these activities are coordinated through:

Across the rest of East Suffolk they tend to be spin-offs from one of the Social Groups, and are largely self-supporting.

The Felixstowe Blind Shooting Club meets every 2 weeks and in 2010 three of its members entered the national championship in Wolverhampton where one of them became English and UK Champion, which is a fabulous achievement. In recent years the Felixstowe Blind Shooting Club (some of whom are pictured below) have held a home and away match against a team from Blind Veterans UK in Brighton, which has proved very successful and enjoyable for all involved.


It is also worth noting that increasingly, local cinemas and theatres are putting on performances of shows using audio description specifically for the visually impaired.
