Lip Speaker
Shropshire Council have kindly agreed to fund a Lipspeaker for future Forum meetings. We appreciate that this service is vital to some of our members, but we do not expect that many will need it. We would therefore appreciate it if, in order to avoid a waste of scarce resources, anyone needing this service could advise me ( or 01691 624669 ) say a fortnight before the meeting.
