Coun Smith unveiled a plaque at the offices and told invited guests about the importance of the Society to the blind and partially sighted. She spoke about her late husband whose sight was impaired. The society will also help people with impaired hearing.

Chief executive of South Lincolnshire Blind Society Malcolm Swinburn said: “It’s all about people being independent. When people lose their sight, life can become very difficult. We do what we can to ensure they get the maximum support with training and putting them in contact with specialist groups.”

Mr Swinburn said the new premises will allow the society to hold in-house training and allow for more visually-impaired people to meet and interact socially.
