I’m posting a lot on our Facebook pages and Pinterest board files so please join them and see all the posts. They are interesting and informative.

We recently received £1,500 from the Resilience funders. We paid £300 to The Salvation Army. We have been based there for 5 years now.

We have been able to buy 30 of Cath Smith’s BSL dictionaries and they have been given FREE to some of our members. We also bought 10 of Cath Smith’s latest book Topics for Tots and 10 sets of House and Home flashcards. These are being laminated and will be turned into flashcards so that they are easy to handle by the babies/toddlers and will be durable. Thank you to Mavis and Debbie for taking on the job of laminating all the resources.

Thank you to Tony for looking after our website and to all those who volunteer to make the refreshments. Thanks to Amy for making and printing out fingerspelling word searches every week. They are so popular with both the children and adults.

Our Thursday meal and the subtitled movie at the Mount is very popular and will continue throughout the Summer holidays. No classes during August. All our classes are flourishing and every class is different and enjoyable.

This year we had a member, Citalli, who came from Mexico especially to attend our classes (she found us on the web). She was already skilled in Mexican sign language and American sign language and could speak other languages. Citalli is now in Norway with her new job as a tour guide. We will be keeping in touch via emails and Skype.

My best wishes to everyone.
