HOW TO GUIDE A BLIND PERSON....
Below is a link showing how to guide a VI person it will help our new guides, also well practiced members and also VI's. It is by Amar Latif who founded the company Traveleyes which specialises in holidays for VI's. I think it is extremely good, so perhaps members would like to take a look.
We are currently sorting a training day for new members and anyone who has already had training but would like a refresher. Thanks Gail

HOLIDAY REMINDER...
To all those going to Llandudno you should have all received a final information letter by now, if not please let me know. Stan Wainwright needs your final payment within the next two weeks. Sue Hill needs to know if you are part of the group going to Portmeirion on the non-walking day.
