Sensory group launches in Thurrock


THURROCK Council is supporting a new group set up to help people with sight or hearing impairments – or who are deaf-blind.

Run by its members, the group was launched at a special event on Tuesday 4 April at Langland Hall, Langland Close in Corringham, attended by Cllr Sue Little, Portfolio Holder for Children’s and Adult Social Care.

The group, started by Deafblind UK, is open to people from Thurrock who have a sensory impairment – and their carers – and will meet fortnightly with alternate meetings hosting an invited speaker.

There are also plans to hold outings and lunches, as well as activities including gardening, arts and crafts, and quizzes.

Cllr Little said after the event: “I’m thrilled the council have been able to support the group by identifying people across the borough who may benefit from the help they provide.

“Meeting all those people who are supporting inclusion in Thurrock is inspiring.”

The group will meet every first and third Tuesday of the month at Langland Hall from 10.30am to 2.30pm.
