A new support group is being launched to help increase the confidence and independence of people affected by macular degeneration in Sutton on Sea and the surrounding area.

The Macular Society together with local people have organised the group, which will meet for the first time today (Wednesday, April 30). The on-going aim of the group will be to offer information, encouragement and friendship to people who are affected by the condition.

Mrs Sherriff (83) from Mablethorpe is affected by macular degeneration and will be attending the group. She said: “It will be nice to meet people with the same condition, and share hints and tips. I’m looking forward to making new friends.”

Amanda Read, Macular Society Group support and development manager added: “This new group is here for anybody affected by macular degeneration, we want to encourage people to come along. Friends and family are very welcome.”

The Macular Society is inviting anyone affected by the condition to the first meeting on Wednesday, 10.30am-12.30pm at St Clement’s Church Hall in Church Lane, Sutton on Sea.
