Centre for blind is forced to close
9:00am Friday 25th October 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
A CENTRE which provides information and equipment for blind people has closed.
The Manningtree Sight Centre in Ironside Walk has closed due to a lack of demand.
A spokesman for Essex Sight Centres said: “Regretfully we are getting insufficient visitors to our Manningtree Sight Centre so we have taken the decision to close.”
Alternative site centres can be found in Colchetser, Dovercourt and Clacton.
Essex Sight Centres will be holding an event at Manningtree Library on Tuesday November 26 from 9.30am to 12pm.
There will be a range of information and equipment on show for anyone wanting advice.
