events in Sussex and Surrey

Hi All,

I am organising a sponsored bike ride on 11th June and I’d love it if anyone here would consider getting involved, either by taking part, volutneering, or just spreading the word. I know it won’t be local to everyone, but any help would be appreciated. The ride starts in Merstham, Surrey (near Redhill) and finishes in Brighton, where Hamilton Lodge School for deaf students will be hosting its summer fete. 

At the moment, I’m looking for:

Volunteers – to help at the start with registering riders and to help in/near Brighton with handing refreshments to riders. It’s a good opportunity to practice some BSL if you are Level 1 or 2. 

People to take part – you don’t need to be a pro cyclist! Just age 16+ and willing to get some practice in before the day (we have training plans to make it easier and mechanics there on the day if you need them, as well as people who can sign). 

People to pop up a poster at their workplace, school, gym etc. I can email or post these. Especially if you live in London, Surrey or Sussex. 

There are more detials about the ride here http://www.hamiltonlsc.co.uk/bike-ride, but please reply if you have any questions. 

Hopefully this will be a great event for hearing and deaf people to participate in as well as being an opportunity to raise funds for our school and NDCS.

Thanks

Jenna

    • Hi I'm Jo, I went to level 2 but chickened out of the exams, watch sign of the day daily and play the fingerspelling game. I enjoy BSL and have used it at work sometimes  
    • Hello, I hope all is well. My name is Adam. I am myself relatively new to BSL. I am more less know the alphabet and few other signs in relation to level 1. I am looking for someone i can practice with. Can spare a few mins on Saturday please. We can use the chat room and practice for a few mins. I am only slightly free on a Saturday and sometimes on a Sunday even then I can still be busy. Thank you  
    • I just completed the BSL introductory course online and thought I would introduce myself, as suggested.  I would like to do more online BSL courses and find a way to practise online with others.    
    • Hi Sarge. I see a lot of posts here have no replies so I'd like to buck that trend. I hope you enjoy coming to the UK. I'm autistic like most of my family. My little brother is autistic too and has learning difficulties and we used to sign with him. That's probably where we began. We started with Makaton and then desired to learn a proper language, then learnt SSE, and now I'm learning BSL proper. BSL is such a wonderfully expressive language that says more quicker than many English words could.
    • I've lots of reasons for learning and am interested to meet people who have similar interests to share vocabulary Im a GP and I want to make my practice more inclusive. I'll still need interpreters, of course, but I'd like to be able to make it more accessible for people to communicate their needs without booking on or relying on an app Im a Scout leader and work with another leader who is Deaf and signs. We already sign together and hope to provide more opportunity for young peo
    • Oh, and I'm autistic and play dungeons and dragons, which means I have loads more vocabulary to develop in the field of neurodiversity and fantasy games!
    • Hi all, New to the forum (obviously). I'm a GP in Wales. I learnt for several years a few decades ago before education moved properly away from SSE towards BSL so I am having one to one lessons as my vocabulary is better than my language structure, and then hope to slot back into a group. My motivations are manifold: I am a GP and want to make my practice more inclusive to Deaf people. I am a scout leader and work with another leader who is Deaf and signs (again, he is older like me so
    • I wrote in my previous post introducing myself my reasons for wanting to learn so I'll just repeat what I wrote there: I am learning to help my younger brother express himself better and speak to d/Deaf people in a way they may find more comfortable.
