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

    • So a while ago I did  video for YouTube and have found it again. If you feel like practicing with me I'm open to helping out    
    • Cassie you are my hero! Thanks
    • Hi Alex, These may help... Forwards Defence Back (Last video):  You are correct about the sign for Black White Pairs Stay Close  (signs for 'near' only)   Also correct for well done/congrats: Well done
    • Hello, haven't used BSL since primary school, but have recently had some children who are deaf join a sports club I help with.  They have a translator with them but I was wondering if you could help me out with a few words so if they are watching us coach rather than their translator they will still get what we are saying Forwards (position) and Go Forwards Defence Go back Black (I believe this is moving your fist along your jawline?) White Pairs Stay Close Well Done (or is congratulations - thumbs up in moving in circles - good for this?)   Thank you in advance! Alex
    • Hello,  This year I have completed a level 1 BSL summer school and had a handful of weekly level 2 1-1 lessons. I really need to have more conversation practice. I'm looking for someone of the same if not higher ability than me to Skype on a weekly basis. I would much prefer a female buddy if possible.  Look forward to signing with you!  Jasmine  
    • Hello Sharon,  I started weekly level 2 lessons in July and did a level 1 summer school. I have no links to the deaf and signing community other than my current 1-1 tutor. Would you be interested in skyping once a week for a 'voice off' short conversation? I can try and commit to a weekly half hour slot or better still we could decide on a weekly adhoc basis?    Jasmine 
    • Hi all im Lisa, I work for a care agency and support a variety of clients, recently we took on a package which are a married couple who are both mute/deaf, she has dementia as well and due to other issues is struggling with her mobility, im trying to learn different signs that help with her care routine, for example I would like to print off and laminate some cards with signs on such as stand, sit, move back etc.   I'm hoping that if the sign is on the card along with the command then carers will begin to pick up bits of the signing which would be a great way of communicating with them.   thanks for reading x
    • Hi all, my name is Nai and I started learning BSL at the beginning of Aug 2018.  I completed the Introduction to BSL through 'British Sign' and am absolutely loving it.  Am keen to move forward with the next level and practice with others. x
