Times are changing for Four Swans Vision. We are currently desperately seeking a new office, as Our home for over the last four years, Bartholomew Court, is being refurbished and turned into residential flats. FSV has been there since our Inception. But onwards and upwards! Despite not having an office base at the moment, we will be working hard and holding our Monthly Meetings 10.30am to 12.30pm on the first Wednesday of the month, at the CVS Community Shop, which is on the right-hand side of where our office was and is next to the CEX Shop (that is spelt C for Charlie, E X for those with screen readers). All our regular Activities/Outings and Sports continue as normal too.


In January Four Swans Vision Members helped the firefighters at Cheshunt Fire & Rescue Station in their Emergency Rescue Assistance drills. This gave the firefighters a better understanding of casualty extrication of blind and partially sighted people who are trapped in a vehicle. See the pictures!


In February, we had a trip to Wood Green, to see the show Cockney Ding Dong. Our members thoroughly enjoyed the show, which consisted of a meal, a sing-a-long and a comedian. In March, we had a trip to the Spotlight, in Broxbourne, to sing-a-long to the show That’ll Be The Day.


We plan another Art Workshop where members can create their own masterpieces, a ‘Touch To See’ book club, also, we are planning trips to the seaside, trips to museums where our members can enjoy the touch tours, and trips to the theatres where we can enjoy a good show. Our V.I.P. Tennis and V.I.P. Golf sessions are very popular, and they certainly help keep everyone active.

We also have fundraising outings planned at Grundy Park, Hoddesdon, Bishops College and Waltham Cross. So please come over and say hello if you spot our bright orange gazebo at any of the events/fairs in the area.
