That means our Level 1 BSL class is going on right now, and our Kids Craft Club will start back on Sunday at 12pm. We look forward to welcoming back all of our wonderful children, and hopefully seeing a few new faces.

Our Kids Craft Club Christmas session was a big hit today. 15 children attended. We have never untangled so many sewing threads in 1 afternoon. 🤣

We are now officially closed for Christmas, however someone will pop on every now and then to post an update and check messags.

We are a bit late in posting this, but we would like to thank everyone who came and supported the Harrington Youth Club Christmas Fayre last weekend.

We only made £39 between our tuck shop and the kids' craft table. However, the youth club made a generous donation of £158 from their own proceeds.

Following on from yesterdays query.

Would you prefer a weekend, or a week night, for the Kids BSL Club?

I know some of the children already attend our Kids Craft Club. Would you prefer the BSL Kids Club to follow on from that session, with a small snack break, or would you prefer a different day?

And would you prefer weekly, fortnightly, or monthly?

We want this to work for as many kids as possible so you insight is vital.

Thank you

Why not make "Learning A New Language" your New Years resolution this year? Or maybe "Taking A Step To Make Our Community More Inclusive"?

We are still taking bookings for our next Level 1 Course, due to start in January.

This course is fully accredited and teaches you conversational Sign Language.

All of our courses are taught by a fully qualified tutor who is also a member of the local deaf community, so you are learning from the best possible source.

Payment Plans are available upon request.

****We tried doing this as a Poll but we could only do it via story's. So were going to try it again as a regular post.****

Following on from the success of our BSL Kids Project we want to know if there would be any call for a Kids BSL Club. This would be open to any child who has done the BSL Kids Project, so they can continue to work on the skills they have learnt. It would not be teaching the basics, only working on the things already taught. Children would have to have done one of the BSL Kids Projects first.

This Club would be £2 per session and children could attend as often or as little as they liked. Please comment below if your child would attend.

This week's craft club made paper plate clocks.

It was very messy session but great fun.

Next week all children need to bring a clear, disposable drinks bottle for that weeks craft.

This is wonderful and it would be amazing if Firefighters in Cumbria would learn to sign. We can put together packages to teach them the signs they would need to enable them to communicate with a deaf person in the event of a fire.
