Moordown: Bournemouth Society for the Visually Impaired
This local charity was originally set up as the Bournemouth Blind Aid Society in the first decade of the 1900s. The wing to the left was living accommodation for about ten blind women. It is now a thriving charity, with some 600 members on its books and runs daily events such as cribbage sessions, bowling and chiropody, as well as a monthly newsletter on cassette and a shop selling visual aids of all sorts, from simple things like bumpy stickers for remote control buttons to television magnifying equipment to large print board games to speech software for pcs.

The right-hand wing is the Rooper Memorial Hall, which is bookable by line-dancing groups and other such organisations, and is named after one of the charity's chief committeemen of the 1940s.
