The advantage of this setup is that the needs of people with visual impairment or other vulnerabilities are catered for, allowing them to just enjoy the morning without the normal hassles that would usually get in the way of such things. For instance they were playing scrabble with extra large letters that included non intrusive braille on them. There are people from Sutton Vision and Scill who are there enjoying the fun but are available should anyone have a problem and need advice or practical support either there or dealing with another issue.
A similar group was set up in Sutton South in the Spring of last year called 'Sutton South Hello' which was designed in a similar way to cater for elderly and more vulnerable people. It was thought that the existing group in Worcester Park might benefit from coming under that same umbrella and so the group was rebranded as the 'Worcester Park Hello Club'. This was launched with a reasonable level of fanfare last November with visiting dignitaries including Sutton's Mayor.
If you feel you might want to come along and join in the activities (or know someone who might), just turn up at Christ Church with St. Philip on Ruskin Road from 10am until 12 noon on a Thursday. There is no need to book or phone ahead but if you would like to talk to someone first, phone Sutton Vision on 0208 409 7166.
