events in Sussex and Surrey

Recommended Posts

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 Anyone know if there is a practice group or similar somewhere in Great Yarmouth or surrounding areas, most places seem to be around the Norwich area? I am currently doing level 2 and really need more receptive practice
    • Hey peeps Ive just done a first year of BSL to keep up with my 11 year old daughter who has cochlear implants. I found watching the DVD part of the level 1 exam too hard but everyone just said get on with it. It was like teh Emperor's New Clothes scenario. So what happens this week, it is announced that the video was in fact for level 2 students. Thankyou! But bizzarely we still watched it as a group and with some support I got there. But it is all a bit of a muddle if you ask me. Anyone else have this prob?
    • Hi peeps, I'm resitting level 3 sections 320/321 anywhere I can find receptive videos to help me with the speed they sign at??? Or anyone wants the do video chats with me??? 
    • hi if its for younger age id think about making it fun colours animals fingerspelling or even learning songs or stories in sign ect if its for older students I learnt things like hobbies, describing family, house, out and about ect hope this helps and good luck xxx
    • Hi ! I am Merve, I am a teacher. I have just completed the lessons of Turkish Sign Language, with the help of what I have learnt I can communicate with deaf people.But this is just in Turkish, my wish is to reach more people , I think this will be possible by learing English Sign Language; so I am here.And also I want to teach the words I learn to my students.
    • Hi Amy We are out tomorrow but Sunday afternoon is good for me.   Lynda x
    • Hi everyone, I am new to BSL and on level one, has anyone yet done the written assessment and what exactly do they mean when they want interesting facts. as i am struggling a little on what to write. Happy Friday 😀👍
    • Hi Lynda, either is fine. I'm around tomorrow until 3:30, or Sunday any time? I'm in Essex but I've been learning signs from the Internet so I've probably got quite a mixture of dialects haha.
