Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Sight Loss Shropshire committee has reluctantly decided to cancel the Winter’s Day Out event scheduled for 22nd January 2021. The next event will be held on 21st January 2022.
Each year at the end of January, Sight Loss Shropshire holds a ‘Winter’s Day Out’ to which all visually impaired people in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin are welcome. Places are free but tickets need to be booked in advance. The event is normally held at the Shrewsbury Town Football Club.
Around 220 people attend this social event each year, which runs from 11am to 3:30pm. Coffee is served on arrival followed by a morning entertainment, often something musical, and then a buffet lunch is served. The afternoon starts with a second entertainment, which might be a local celebrity with an interesting topic or tales to tell! Tickets for the event are numbered and the day ends with a raffle and tea.
