This Local Peer Support Group provides a welcoming, safe and friendly opportunity for people with inherited sight loss to meet up to share experiences, tips and information.

We are pleased to invite you to join group facilitator James Birtley and the Berkshire group for their first in-person social meet up of the year at the Bluegrass BBQ Smokehouse restaurant in Reading.

Due to popular demand, we are pleased to be returning to Bluegrass for a social catch up over lunch on Saturday 15 June at 1:00pm.

With a passion for Real American BBQ, it is Bluegrass’s quest to bring the genuine flavours of the Southern States to the UK.

Their recipes have won awards at the Jack Daniels Invitational BBQ contest in Tennessee and they are dedicated to creating and serving the very best BBQ, smoked low ‘n’ slow on site daily in their imported hardwood burning smokers.
