Christmas party and Tactile Books

We were all engrossed with our speaker Alex Britton from Clear Vision who gave us a good understanding of the need for fabric books for young people learning to read Braille and how the experience can be made both interesting and inspiring. We were able to try the experience by 'feeling' shapes and understanding how difficult this can be without a variety of textures.

Many of us took away a hand out giving guide lines and we will have a discussion of how to go forward at our January meeting. If you can't wait or want to know more here are the links to Clear Vision:   Twitter: ClearVisionOrg

After our speaker rushed off for her train we were able to get on with the serious business of hot mulled apple juice, cakes and mince pies whilst we had the results of the Christmas competition which was won by Meriel with her wonderful book of holiday memories.

For the raffle we had 2 prizes, a festive  gold bag created by Janet Lee and won by Clare and a Christmas Hamper which was won by Angela - well done both hope you are enjoying the goodies!
