Forth Valley Sensory Centre
One of our evening groups is inviting new people to come along and make some ConneXions as they look to welcome new members.
Originally set up as a group for former pupils of Carrongrange School, the group has been expanded to include all young people with a learning or sensory condition. Many people with learning difficulties also have sight or hearing loss and this is a welcoming group which understands the additional support some people might need. However, it also recognises that like all young people, fun is the main aim!
As a result, there are always new activities planned. The next few months has a number of particularly topical and exciting social events.
Coming up at ConneXions:
- Halloween Party 25th October
- Pantomime in Grangemouth (Pinnochio) 29th November
- Ten Pin Bowling 31st January
The ConneXions Group meets on the last Thursday of each month, 7pm to 9pm. The IT suite is opened up for those who want to use a computer but there are regular outings, including cinema trips as well as themed parties and BBQ’s in the summer months.
Anyone interested in coming along is invited to contact group organiser Liz Storey on 07516 086 564 or you can email Brenda at the Centre.
Some members have helped raise money for the ConneXions group outings and activities so it is very well supported and thought of in the local community.
