Mr. Colin Turnbull,
The Club was started in the early 1970’s and has around 60 members.
The aim is to provide social and recreational facilities in an atmosphere sympathetic to the hard-of hearing and to keep members informed on services and aids available to the hearing impaired. They have outings, talks, slide shows, craft sessions, a Christmas lunch, Bingo, and a trip to a pantomime, etc. yearly. For appropriate sessions, such as talks and meetings, Derbyshire County Council fund the hire of a speech interpretation service where a computer operator types what is being said and this is shown on a screen.
