At the next meeting you will be joined by Jennifer Gregory, from Oxsight.  Jennifer will be talking about Oxsight and their research in 2010, at the University of Oxford.  The researchers worked closely with the low vision community to explore how the brain manages visual information and what  can be done to amplify this capability in people with visual impairment. 

Ludlow Group meets on Monday 10th February, 10.30 am -12.30 pm at at St Peters Church, Henley Road, Ludlow SY8 1QZ

This month you will be joined by Shropshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire Blood Bikes.  Across the UK there are groups similar operating for the benefit of their local area. Through co-operation between these groups, they link together to form the Blood Bike Network, which provides a vital service up and down the country, saving the NHS money on taxis – and most importantly, saving lives!

Shrewsbury Group meets on Monday 24th February, 2 pm-4 pm at  The University Centre Shrewsbury, Guildhall, Shrewsbury SY3 8HQ, in room SGH201  

As the Ludlow SLOG Group you will also be joined by Shropshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire Blood Bikes.  Currently hospitals within Shropshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire have little choice but to call a local taxi company to collect and deliver the blood. The hospital would then be charged retail rates for this “service”. That’s where the Blood Bikes come in.

Please contact me by 7th February to book yourself in for 10-pin bowling on Monday 23rd March, 14:00 pm to 16:00 pm
