June 2012 Newsletter

Change to Monday class venue
Starting Monday 2 July our evening classes will be held at the Salvation Army’s new church on Shakespeare Street. This will be our permanent Monday evening venue. The church has disabled access and toilet as well as internet facilities and a large parking area. The cost will be considerably cheaper, which also includes our refreshments.

There is a cafe which is open weekdays until 4pm, and prices are very reasonable.

Deaf Awareness Week
This week is Deaf Awareness Week. To highlight Deaf Awareness Week, PMP will be raising awareness at Ron’s Therapeutic Art Group Exhibition at Mersey Boat Club, Pilling Lane, Lydiate on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th May. Maureen and Mavis will be available to give out information.

Maureen will also be giving a talk on 16 May at a church near Thornton.

Updated dictioiary on signwriting.org.uk
Maureen has added 100s of words into the dictionary and literature sections of www.signwriting.org.uk. When you go on the website, the left Union Jack flag is the dictionary and the right Union Jack flag is the literature section.

Not open on Bank Holidays!
Just a reminder that the Marian Centre is NOT open on Bank Holiday Mondays.

Our last date at the Centre before the summer holidays will be 25 June. The Centre will be closed ALL of July and August. However, we will be meeting at a local pub instead. Details at a later date.

We re-open at the Marian Centre on 3 September until 26 November, which will be our Christmas get-together. We will then re-open on 14 January 2013.
