Event description: We look forward to welcoming two speakers.
Jean Randall-Smith, Chief Officer of Healthwatch Shropshire will give a talk entitled “Making Yourself Heard.
We are fortunate to have Philip Moyse, MBE as our second guest speaker, who has kindly agreed to come at short notice to replace Andy Bleach who is unable to be with us on this occasion.Mr Moyse will tell us about the free scheme which he runs to help older people to become computer literate, a vital need at a time when local authorities and others are trying hard to deliver services electronically whenever possible.
It is also time for our Annual General Meeting; As was the case last year, we will keep the formal business (always a turn-off for meetings) to an absolute minimum. The existing committee members are all standing for re-election, but we badly need more committee members, following three recent resignations due to unforeseen circumstances.
In particular, we would like to see representatives of:
The Deaf Clubs and Hard of Hearing Clubs.
A nomination form can be downloaded below or obtained by emailing, telephoning or contacting a Committee Member. We really would appreciate your contribution. The committee normally meets about once every six weeks and offers a real opportunity to contribute to the welfare of the Deaf and hearing-impaired community throughout Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin.
