Annual General Meeting

We shall be holding our annual meeting at the Atlas Centre, 7 Bachelors Walk, Lisburn, on Thursday 17th January, commencing at 6.15 sharp.

The Atlas Centre has been recently modernised and is situated close to the train station and also to local pubs and restaurants.

This will be our opportunity to stock take and your opportunity to help us Make Lisburn Outlook more relevant and more effective in promoting social, recreational and cultural activities for blind and partially sighted people in our area.

We look forward to seeing you there.

 

Archery Taster Sessions

City of Belfast Archery Club are hopeful of funding to run taster archery sessions for people with sight loss and if there is enough interest to develop this into a club.  They would be running these sessions in the evening from their premises in Boucher Road (the former B&Q building) – most likely starting early this year.

At this stage they don’t have starting dates, days or times but are just looking to see how many people might be interested in this.

If you are interested in this, please contact Olive Rodgers on 02890334133 as soon as possible.

 

Quiz Time Again

The Mayor of Lisburn and Castlereagh is again hosting a table quiz in support of his mayoral charity, on 28th March.  Last year a Lisburn Outlook team acquitted itself well and I’m sure we can do even better this year.

If you would like to be a member of the team, please contact David on 07766302496 or via lisburnoutlook@gmail.com.
