Hearing Dogs for Deaf People is a UK charity which trains dogs to alert deaf people – both adults and children – to a variety of sounds at home and in public. Each hearing dog also helps to bring a visibility to their recipient’s deafness thanks to the burgundy jackets they wear when out in public.
Although Jane Harrison is the speaker, the real star of the show will undoubtedly be Indy, who is also coming, and has featured in her talks about the charity for some time. However Jane wrote to us yesterday as follows:
“Indy will be retiring on 27th September. I too will be taking a break from talks so I have mixed feelings at the moment”, so next Monday will be one of his last gigs!”
As listed in the Programme card, the Xmas Lights switch-on event will take place this year on WEDNESDAY 28 Nov. Please make a note in your diary of this popular village event with music, food and Father Christmas. (Apologies for mentioning this so early!)
