Lions 105EA Weekly News 27th January 2019

Deaf Awareness Training
This will make you more aware of difficulties the deaf and hearing impaired encounter when they are out and about, it will also equip you with the skills to aid communication with hearing impaired people, and also make you aware of the scale of the problem. If you then wish with a little bit of further training you could become Deaf Awareness Trainers.
I have booked a room and arranged lunch on Saturday 16th February 2019 at the Oliver Cromwell Hotel, March, commencing at 10.00 am for 10.30 am. I hope we will be finished by about 3pm.
The cost for the day including lunch will be £5 each.
Lunch will be either beef lasagne or vegetable lasagne served with a roast potato, followed by fresh fruit salad. If you would prefer something different for dietary reasons please let me know as soon as possible.
I require definite bookings by Saturday 2nd February, if I have insufficient numbers by this date I shall have to cancel.
