We would like to invite you, your family and friends to join us for SVI’s formal launch event at our new premises at West Bromwich Town Hall.

Our guest speaker will be Sion Simon, member of the European Parliament for the West Midlands, former Member of Parliament for Birmingham Erdington and former minister to her Majesty's government for further education and creative industries. He was the minister responsible for allocating funding for the state of the art Sandwell College we now have in West Bromwich also, Sion is a West Bromwich Albion supporter.

Tom Watson MP Member of Parliament for West Bromwich East and the Deputy Leader of the Labour Party will be popping in between 12pm and 12.30pm along with councillors Simon Hackett, with responsibility for Children’s Services, and Ann Shackleton, responsible for Social Care.

There will be light entertainment, some fun activities and a raffle – as well as refreshments and light nibbles.    

Plenty of help will be on hand to meet and greet you to this new venue. Members' travel expenses will be paid as long as you have a receipt for your journey.

We do hope you will join us. Please call us on 0121 525 4810 or email info@sandwellvisuallyimpaired.org.uk to book your place by Wednesday 9 August.
