More than two thousand visually impaired people from across Hampshire are coming together to find out how new technology could make their lives easier. The exhibition at the Ageas Bowl near Southampton will also show the range of services available.
One in five people over 75 will suffer sight loss in the UK and those numbers are set to double over the next 50 years as the average age of our population increases.
A company has been charged after a builder was killed when a concrete wall fell on him at a cricket ground in Hampshire.
Phillip Carsley died on 8 February, 2010. Concrete from building works on two new stands fell on him whilst he was working at the Ageas Bowl.
Both companies are due to appear at West Hampshire Magistrates' Court on 3 July, 2013.
Hampshire wicketkeeper Michael Bates has signed a two-year deal which will keep him at the club until the end of the 2014 season. Bates, who became full-time first choice wicketkeeper this summer, was out of contract at the close of the 2012 campaign.
Bates had a terrific campaign for Hampshire last season, finishing the summer with the joint leading number of first class dismissals in the country. He also equalled a ground record, taking six catches in an innings against Gloucestershire at The Ageas Bowl.
