Some exciting news from ELVis and an update on 2 Vision Strategy Consultations!

Hi all, it is good to catch up again and today I have 3 things I’d like to share with you.

On Friday the 25th of September Tower Hamlets held a Sight and Information Day.  Various exhibitors attended the event, including: Beyond Barriers, East London Vision, Humanware, to name a few.  It was so nice to see so many people from the local peer support groups supporting this event. People seem to learn, have fun and gain useful information and on the plus side, we managed to register a few more members.:)

Now for the exciting news!

We had a new addition to the ELVis Team who started with us 6th October.  So let us welcome Graham Page, Graham is our Assistive Technology Adviser, it is a pleasure having Graham around.  Also a very warm welcome to Andrew Goodwin (The Volunteer Coordinator) Who will be dedicating some of his precious time to ELVis and I’m happy to say, both Andrew and Graham have settled in extremely well.

Last week there were 2 Vision Strategy consultations that took place. Firstly, Waltham Forest Vision held their AGM and Vision Strategy consultation which was well attended.  Great discussions took place on future priorities, followed by a yummy supper of fish and chips.

And finally the Hackney Vision Strategy consultation, this was well attended too and I’m pleased to report that the event ended with a finger buffet, which gave the members an opportunity to socialise and make new friends.

Have a blessed week.

Chris
