Our Christmas party completed the year in style for members and helpers from the All Saints Church, Alton, Hard of Hearing Group

We were splendidly entertained by Robin Kemp with his music and stories. We then enjoyed a buffet prepared by an external caterer and served at our tables which were beautifully decorated with floral displays made by one of our members.

The food was accompanied by a little ‘tipple’ and after this there was a grand raffle of prizes donated by members. We had intended to finish with some carols but unfortunately these were squeezed out by the bumper raffle!

The hard of hearing group meets every month to enjoy a varied programme of guest speakers. Our next meeting will take place on January 24 when there will be a talk about hearing dogs for deaf people.

In addition to the monthly talks there are two other events during the month – one is for knitters who produce items for various charities, and also lip-reading classes to assist those with hearing difficulties.

If anyone would like to know more about any of these events please contact Annette Blackman on 01420 543219 or email [email protected]
