Clubs and Groups

There are lots of clubs and groups for sight impaired people in Oxfordshire. They are all very welcoming and there’s likely to be one near you. If you are interested in trying out visiting a club or group, do give us a call and we’d be delighted to tell you all about them and introduce you to the organiser.

Here’s a note from Kevin, the organiser of the Dreaming Spires Ten Pin Bowling Club: Why not join us on a Friday afternoon at the bowling alley near the Kassam Stadium? All levels of bowlers are welcome. Why not come along and try a great sport? Contact me: Kevin Pamphilon on 01869 331778

VIBNO is a social group for visually impaired adults aged 18 – 50 to meet socially and have fun in Oxfordshire! We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of the Month and alternate between a drink and chat at a pub and meals out, Aunt Sally and skittles evenings as well as trips such as boat trips and visits to places of interest with touch tours or description. If you would like to join us, partners, family and friends are welcome to all events. Recently we have met up for a chat and a drink at the Black Horse Pub in Kidlington, enjoyed meals at The Six Bells Pub, Kidlington and Cosmo in Oxford.
